Government Pay. 

It was a mist al;e. a great injustice to so l> ut " green-backs " to Cali- 
fornia, where we have no paper currency'puia' all transactions are based 
upon gold and silver as the tost of value. Almost all the gold the Gov- 
veruinent ol the country gets and has got for a dozen years came from 
California, That was and is our currency. To force upon us. against 
the very spirit of our financial system, this paper, was not only unjust 
but a mistake as to policy. Already the Government is feeling the ef- 
fect ol it. Scarce a dollar in gold will it receive for all our internal 
revenue— nearly all will be paid in Treasury notes. Instead of a thous- 
, liars in gold it will get only a thousand in paper, worth less 
than seven hundred dollars. Bui the greatest hardship is upon the Gov- 
ernment employees, both civil and military. Iu the first place, their 
salaries have been reduced to that of menial service, and now, it they 
have to receive their pay in "green-backs," and dispose of them at 
present rate, of discount to pay current bills and previous contracts, 
they hail better resign their positions and go to digging clams or keep- 
ing hen ranches. First of all, Government should pay its civil, mili- 
tary and naval emplovees on this coast in gold. They can Bcarcely 
subsist upon present salaries at that. If Treasury notes have to be 
paid out, let it be to contractors, who make their estimates upon the 
ba-sis of paper money, and consequently charge a proportionately high 
price. The policy of starving employees, civil or military, is the worst 
the Government could possibly adopt. To do so is to force honest and 
capable men to seek other employment, hy which they can sustain their 
families, and leave offices to be filled by those whose consciences and 
necessities will leave no bar between themselves and plunder. \\e 
should be sorry to see Mr. Chase reduce to reality the old fable, and by 
a least of " green-backs " choke and kill the goose that lays the golden 
egg. Let Government pluck California, but it should not stop the 
breed. . 

Ixmi'.n r RECOQsrritw of the Sodtmes Confederacy.— Earl Russell, 
in reply to the application of the Liverpool merchants, for indemnity 
arising from the losses sustained by the seizure of their goods by the 
steamer Alabama, has replied that, "their only mode of redress must be 
through the Courts of the Southern Confederacy."

How to Grow Rich- 



Gold in New York is fifty per cent, premium, and still advancing, at 
,h ,,-e of about five per cent, per diem. As this is likely to continue 
, i ew 1, have gold keep it, and they who have not get t and 
,.",. Alittle Will soon make them rich. In a year or two, at this 

rfte a "old eaele will be a fortune. So keep your gold safely. Look 
at V fXf to be sure, but don't spend it. True, if youputa green- 
back' in voir pocket you Will double it, and find it constantly increases; 
but as"ts value is ebbing, like the blood irom a stuck pig or a decapt- 
1 doublinl and increasing only makes it burthensome 

I no? vl able. Gold is the crop to plant-it will soon produce a 
td-ed- old eating the wheat in the parable Already each double- 
eaSefs worth toe%agles of par funds, and ere long the flock of 
American ea°les will be so numerous that ■• spread-eagle "boasting 
wiU be a legitimate system of oratory. Mr. Chase has done it-made 
a paper nesf which inttates^nd sen ds the eagles up into the clouds. 

Our Letter From "Washoe. 

Viiujixia City, January 13, 1863. 

Your paper and letter, explaining the reason of your admitting the 
card of James W. Mills. Esq , came duly to band _ His card does not 
?n imWate me in the least. He will find out on his return that all I 
havTwri tents True. He imposed upon you when he assumed an hum- 
ble a t i de Had you known him, you could have driven him from 
your office with your composing sti ck. If he was worth any furtbe r 



THE SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER, AND 



thought from me, I would fill your sheet with a description of the fight 1 
between the St. Louis and Lucy Ella Companies, in which this man 
started with the Sheriff's posse, but his horse got lame at Silver City. 
But enough of him until he arrives. Since I last wrote you. the "Levi- 
athan" in the shape of mills has been overhauled, and will start twenty 
ot her stamps before this reaches you. and in a week further the entire 
works will be under way. I confess I have bad my fears, but they are 
now entirely dispelled. The mill is a success beyond a doubt; and if 
an on d'd is true, Charley Strong is not the only happy one, as I learn 
that upon the success of the mill depended another important event, 
which will enable Charley to share his happiness with one of Eve's 
fairest daughters. The mill is a success. The bolting arrangements 
were not exactly adjusted, an error that I pointed out to 5Ir. Parks, 
but he differed with me. Everything now is all right. My friend God- 
frey arrived all safe, and informed me that he had made a big raise on 
one foot, and advised all Washoeites to go to San Francisco and soak 
their feet, and as he brought out "broken Wasuoeite,' 1 Billy looked up 
at me so earnestly, as much as to say, " Now, I have got you, my boy," 
which hurt my feelings much more than the aforesaid raid of James W. 
Mills. Esq. The Ophir Company, under the management of Mr. Palmer, 
is now bearing rich fruit, not only at south but at the north mine. Mr. 
"White has been much occupied in placing all matters upon a correct 
basis, and he looks well pleased, as he will be able to make a good re- 
port to his Board of Directors. I have only been at one mine since I 
last wrote — the Savage and Gould &. Curry. To see one is to see both, 
as the Gould & Curry are working up to the line of the Savage Com- 
pany's ground. The great show of wealth is astonishing. In thirty 
days from to-day the Savage will be in rich ore, and by the first of 
July will be paying dividends, unless the Directors take pattern by 
other big mines, and build a mill. The Savage, in sixty days, can take 
out five tons per day, in ninety days ten tons, and in four months fif- 
teen tons of ore, that will average $200 per ton. So any of your read- 
ers, as soon as they can ascertain the debt of the Company, can cal- 
culate with more nicety than I can what time this Company will pay. 
The Gonld & Curry is past all my ideas of wealth. A visit to this 
mine will give any one the blues. How many castles I have built, pro- 
vided the whole mine was mine; how I would relieve the world of the 
starving operatives in Europe, and the poor but honest residents of the 
" Jim of the Say." There I go again; I don't own it; the little interest 
that I have is at " My Uncle's."

A "Pioneer" Mining Shark! 

A communication in the Evening ButUtin, of the 15th inst., purporting tohavebeen 
written by a '-Pioneer" in the Esmeralda miuiug region, abounds in such gross and 
Willful misrepresentaion of facts, as to demand a rebuttal from one of the parties therein 
interested. The editor was, doubtless, uninformed of the facts, or this tissue of mis- 
statements would never have appeared in the columns of bis journal. In the Rj-st place, 
the public is informed that there is no such firm as "J. W. Tucker," and James Stark 
k Co. Secondly, the assertion is false that the injunction of the "Dimes" covers the 
•-Wide West" and "Johnson" mines. On the contrary, the "Wide West' owns the 
controlling interst of the "Dimes," viz. : 4IS feet out of 800, and which stands in the 
name of Capt. T. W. Lyle, for the "Wine West" Company. The injunction is brought 
by parties owning a minority of the slock for a division of the -'Dimes." The "Wido 
West"Company is uot working within a considerable- distance of the"Diroes"nnr .In the* 
desire to infringe upon their rights in the least. The object of "Pioneer" is obvious. 
He desires to frighten timid holders Of stock, En order that he and the mining sharks 
With whom he is associated, may acquire a monopoly of the claims. He is a type of a 
pestilential class in every community, who desire", through means dishonorable and 
contemptible, to put money into his purse, rather than to transact business iu a fair 
and legitimate manner. The undersigned wishes it distinctly understood that be is uot 
a seller, but a buyer, of mininfng stock in the claims above referred to. As for the 
"Pioneer" author of the letter dated imndre Is of miles from the locality where it was 
penned, the undersigned would suggest that hereafter, he affix to his communi- ■atii.ns 
the more appropriate signature of -Silver Shark." J. W. TCCKEB. 



Ladies' Tears ! 

(< Command these fretting waters from your eyes, 
With a light heart." 

Joy and Sorrow. Life and Death, Love and Hatred, Riches'and Pov- 
erty. Melancholy and .Mirth, Fashion and Fate, Beauty and Beggary, Cowardice and 
Cruelty. Calamity and Celibacy, Constancy and Courage, Bigotry and Blindness, Envy 

and Jealousy — all, all, have shed tears. Their copious showers have moistened the 
downy pillows of couches soft and luxuriant. But what are they compared to "Ladies 1 
Tears '/''—Nothing! Old Sol., with his Thousand Wives, and his experience attending 
them, had no idea of "Ladies' Tears" bottled up, suited to appease the wrath of the 
gods and guarantee the niosl precious gift the fan' goddess cuuM bestow— Immortality. 
Our friend Squarza has put us to all this serious reflection. He has brought conviction 
t« our eyes on this point, by the enduring proof ol his last celebrity, ''Ladies Tears." 
Sol,i,.- w:iL' ':u s, Squarza must be a special favorite with the fair creatures; that all 
their tears of bitter auguish must be poured forth into his capacious vats, and thence, 
(tasked, corked, sealed, and -tamped. We are compelled^ however, to dissent— sinco, 
from its i i ta.-t. and flavor, aud the unexampled pk-ii.-urable sensations 

produced, it must be the philosopher's secret stone which turns all things i" gold. We 
therefore earnestly recoiomeud our lady-l'neuds, married and single, to tas/to and be 
satistk-d.

The Last Case of Habeas Corpus. 

"A habeas corpus case of some importance was decided before Judge Tearson.at 
Harrison rg, on Saturday. It appears that a roan Qamcd J<dm Went, of Snyder county, 
having been drafted lor the' service of the United Stales, and railing to report himself 
to the drafting commissioner for his county, was brought to Harrisburg by a squad of 
the ProvOSl Guard Battalion, and eon lined there to await orders. Went immediately 
petitioned for a writ at hal/eas eorpm, with the usual allegation and deposition, and the 
writ having been granted, bis Honor ordered a hearing of the case ou Saturday morn- 
ing. It was contended by the counsel for the petitioner, that the United States authori- 
ties had not the right to force him into tin.- service, inasmuch as he, as well as every 
other drafted man, was exempt ou paying a fine, and that it was the petitioner's inten- 
tion so to do. The Judge overruled the pleading of the petitioner, aud remanded him 
hack to tbe charge of the proper authorities, remarking that the proper course for him 
to pursue was to claim exemption under the drafting regulations." 
They drafted Went to fight the foe, 
But spite of name Went was -'no go;" 
Nor shriek of fife, nor roll of drum, 
Nor draft, nor call, could make Went come. 
Although his name the list was on, 
"When it they called our Went was gone. 
The Provost «squad went and Went sought. 
And having found and seized. Went brought. 
But though they bound him tight, Went still 
Came with a habeas corpus bill: 
Alledging, if he paid a line, 
They couldn't make Went go in line. 
Tbe Judge, well versed in tense and mood, 
Iustanter gave this verdict shrewd: 
"A man to make his own defence 
In court must be in present tensej 
If he is went he can't be here, 
If went means gone, the case is clear: 
If he is Went, and went means gone, 
His status is viprcesens ?ion; 
So since he is the court beyond, 
I cannot to his prayer respond; 
His march to fame I can r t retard, 
But leave him with the Provost Guard." 
And so the Guard said, while they laughed, 
"Come, Went, go take with us your draft; 
And if you live, Went back shall come, 
With flying flags and roll of drum; 
But if you (all, the slab shall tell, 
By draft, tho' not by drink you fell; 
Your epitaph fur soldier meant — 
' Mv country called me and— I Went. 
Here, stranger, read these stones upon, 
All of life's history, go, Went, gone.' "

Andrew Kohler, the ■* Alchemist," at bis Dirty Work Again! 

This innocent vender of wax dolls with moveable eyes, having re- 
cently escaped from the legal consequences touching his presumed 
delinquency in substituting a lead bar tor a gold one with the House of 
H ells, Fargo & Co., having become so notorious, it is thought would 
have striven hard to replace himself were it possible (.") iu the good 
opinion of our business community. Alas! with others we have been 
grossly deceived by the incorrigible Kholer who seems determined to 
perform any dishonorable act equally unprincipled with his former 
achievements. The'same Andrew Kohler, derisively known as the " Al~ 
>'," has lately been perfoming an operation equalled only in 
enormity by his former base-metal one, which, by way of caution, we 
brwJy and truly relate: Andrew Kohler having lately two notes to 
pa/ watch were made six months since on a settlement of $2,776 GO, on 
bujue&l older still, has refused to pay unless in depreciated green 
■ . ".' the very moment he teas pocketing in gold coin from other par- 
amount agreed upon, and would have felt highly indignant it the 
pay.nent iu depreciated paper had been proposed to him. Our only 
urprise is that any respectable party should have courage to do busi- 
ness with Kohler after the Bankers generally had declined to take his 
account and the insurance office his premium on current policy. 

KOHLER THE ALCHEMIST.— Twelfth District Court — Andrew 
Kohler vs. Wells, Fargo & Co. — This was an action to recover $4,000, 
alleged by plaintiff to have been paid under duress to defendants as the 
value of a gold bar shipped by plaintiff with defendants, and expenses 
thereon. The defence was that the bar so shipped by plaintiff was a 
lead one, fraudulently imposed upon defendants as gold. The jury 
found a verdict for defendants. We may well congratulate the defend- 
ants upon the entire justification of their conduct in this transaction.

THE SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER, 



Will Abraham Never Cut His Throat ? 

The time has arrived when every resident of the late United States 
of America, whether native or foreign, has to ask himself many serious 
questions. Those who have nothing to lose may safely put their hands 
into their empty pockets, and having disgorged a dipperful of tobacco 
juice, may exclaim "Let her rip !" Not so the men who have property 
of thjir own. or property of others confided to their care. California 
being separated and distinct from all the violaters of the Laws and the 
Constitution— on which heretofore Americans relied — has to consider 
well, and she can do it calmly, her position at the present moment. So 
far she is less seriously affected by the present war than is England or 
France. True, she has had green-backs thrust upon her, and her min- 
ers are being threatened with a prohibitory taxation on their claims. 
These are evil times; times necessitating immediate investigation into 
our position and prospects, and instant action in anticipation of the 
threatened future. Whatever of merit the so-called "Government" of 
the late United States may have had, wisdom and honesty have not 
been characteristics of her public servants. The ''Government'' at 
Washington knows right well the wisdom of not "stirring stink;" yet, 
somehow or other, the people are becoming aware of certain little 
" Frauds la Contracts," aud such-lite indications of rottenness — hid from the public 
cyo, and ucver punished least recriminations would expose the ''smart' 1 transactions of 
tbe bigger thieves in office. It suits Mr. Seward to tell the credulous vulgar that, as 
booq as the ''rebellion" is "squelched," "he's a-going to take Canada," and whip Cre- 
ation generally; but it strikes us that wheu the unhappy people of this once happy, 
proud and glorious country are permitted to know a few facts iu regard to the state of 
their Hard Cash and Credit, that there will be precious little disposition for any more 
war, or iudeed moans for carryjug on any war whatever, no matter how essential to 
national life and the maintainauce of a free Government. The people of America, un- 
der the guidance of a set of knaves, fools and drunkards, have obviously gone in lemons 
aud are being rapidly turned out peels. The American people have, as a people, never 
eaten the bread of idleness. Witness the. limitless tracts of country cut out of the wil- 
derness. But they have, ever since the Declaration of Independence, granted power 
and influence to men lower and lower in all the attributes that go to constitute such a 
man as Washington. 

Our fnturel The reign of wide-spread universal "smartness" has begun; and, as the 
current lends, he must be a wise man who can say what is in twelve months hence his 
owu. Already the Eastern Stales acknowledge — acknowledge — to a public debt equal 
to the one-half of that of Great Britain. Who the devil is to pay it f "Sharp's the 
word;" but the yawning bottomless pit of bankruptcy, with no means of escape, stands 
before us. The people of the Northwest are neither drunk uor mad. " Necessity has 
no laws." No matter how dear may be the reminiscence of the past, the future has to 
yield to circumstances. The future is black as Erebus, and California has to look to 
her owu children. The way in which the Eastern Slates have managed the affairs of 
the Nation is being calmly pondered over, aud is "a caution" to us upon tho shores of 
the PaciQc. 

"A Review of Sixty Days." 

During the past sixty days we have had military operations enough 
to enthuse us. That gold should so treasonably stand at 50 per cent, 
will not cause any loyalist to tremble for the future of his once happy 
country. This rise in gold commenced with our retirement from Fred- 
ericksburgh, on the 13th and 14th of Dec., with a loss of from 20,000 to 
25,000 men. It continued to rise on the 29th, 30th and 31st of the same 
month, tne date of our "substantial victory" at Murfreesboro, with a 
loss of 20,000 to 25,000 men, aud our complete repulse at Vicksburg 
with a loss of 10,000 men. It continued to rise on the 1st of January 
(day of delightful memory), the date of the recapture of Galveston by 
the Rebels under Magruder (of Big Bethel memory), with a loss of two 
armed vessels, stores, munitions, aud a large number of prisoners. It 
now stands at 50 per cent., and Grant's army has retired to Memphis. 
This is enough for a reasonable explanation to any lover of his country 
why gold should be so feverish, and green-backs should have gangreen. 

Philanthropy vs. Common Sense. 

Ticket-of-leave Convicts are rapidly bringing the people of England 

to a '-sense of theJr silivatinn." Two young girls have been violated aud murdered 
within a few weeks by Ticket -of- Leave men; and robbery with violence is a daily occur- 
rence. Our ancestors were, It seems, according to modern nations, very great barbarians 
for putting such characters out of pain, and out of barm's way. We have lived long 
enough to feel convinced that the best aud most merciful course is to hang certain men. 
There arc dogs that, having once killed sheep, will continue to kill when they "get a 
chance;" aud the best cure for them is, to cut oil' their tails immediately behind the 
ears! Rational philanthropy "we believe in;" but we have a great respect for good 
common 6ense. The English press tells us that ''The Negroes ot St Vincent's, whom 
we 'bought with a price,' and emancipated thirty years ago, have riseu on their while 
liberators, and seek to go back to jungle and B&V&gO life." No violent aud sudden 
change has ever yet resulted in permanent good. 



Tax! Tax!! Tax!!! 

California has been playing the part of a fool, and is about to reap 

the fruits ol her fully. Her gold has exoltcd the greedy instiocGs of the miserable 
poverty-stricken Yankee,-', and they have resolved, if pKsible, toput OU the BCT6WS. 
California gold has beeu forthcoming lor all descriptions of folly, from that ol the Cable 
Celebratiou to making a Sain tot that defunct drunkard K. B. HcSIouus. In the pure times 
of Buchanan, an attempt was made to rob the oldest miners iu California, the proprietors 
of the New Almaden Mines, of their property, being"alimt." In these purer times, 
Abraham the First has it in contemplation io seize on our gold fields, and compel native 
and alien alike to labor to 1111 the maw of the military Frankenstein lie has formed. It 
strikes ua that every one of our "honest miners" will require at least ten armed soldiers 
placed over him, before he cau be made to come up to the mark of Yankee greed! 



"The English Pirate Alabama." 
It is not generally known, but the fact ia undeniable, that Captain 

Scmmes is only the nominal Commander of tho Alabama. Our readers may start, but 
nevertheless ii is too true, that the Prince of Wales commands the Alabama; and she is 
maimed by the sous of the bloated aristocrats of Europe — the Orleans Primes amongst 
the rest. The Monitor has, it appears, been converted into a Diver ; and that, before she 
threw those "shells into Regent street.' 1 Nevertheless we hope that Admiral Vandarbilt, 
or some other "whole-souled" Patriot, will come to the National rescue, aud send one of 
his steamers to low the Alabama into New York. Lord Palmer clou's brother, Jack, is 
lob-lolly-boy on board, and Dr. Holloway is surgeon. 



A Contradiction in Teems. — Man and wife. 



Tiic TJpsliot of the American War. 

[From the London Dispatch, December 7th.} 

In our apprehension tbe country is irreclaitnably ruined, in reference 
to alt the characteristics of higher civilization. The seven millions of migrated Eu- 
ropeans, who madd u|) the whole difference of population between the Federalists and 
Confederates, enriched aud settled the country. Ail who cannot escape to Europe or 
Canada claim to be British citizens. Who now will go to the United Stales to be tax- 
ed far more heavily than iu Britain, and. to bo lell without employment on manufac- 
tures, artificially protected, that can llud no customers? If the South succeeds in 
establishing her independence, the manufactures or the North will be left without 
purchasers — if it is conquered, it will beruiuod aud have no means to buy. It is con- 
fidently asserted that the Western Stales will not — iudeed, cauuot— pay the taxes 
heaped ou tbem by the war. What cau bo tho result but national bankruptcy to bo- 
giu, and anarchy and rovolutiou to wind up? It is true that the money may be said 
to have been lout to themselves ; but it is also certain that it is so much of the na- 
tional capital absolutely destroyed — the life-blood of production, as well as tho sin- 
ews of war. It is st'U more true lhat one-third of the able-bodied males of the 
Uuion have beou abstracted from the business of production to exert their industry 
iu destruction; and that onefaurth of the producers will prove to be killed or perma- 
nently disabled — peusioners and burdens on society, iu place of aids to its prosperity. 
The Federalists are fond to console themselves by making a-rule-of-lhree sum ot 
their hopes for the fulure. They say , if England waged war so long and sustained 
such a heavy debt, why may not We 1 Well, wa Will tell them. Loudon was a luwu 
of thirty thousand inhabitants in the time ot Julius C*sar. Where was New Ifork i 
The miues of Cornwall were worked m the reign of the Autouiues. Where was the 
lead of Galena, or the anthracite of Pennsylvania? England has been accumulating 
wealth, and piling up the means of production, for eighteen hundred years; tho 
United States are scarcely eighty years old. Why, the very hedges aud djicbes, 
drams aud cleared laud, ihe labor of England of the last century, are worth more 
than tne whole capital of ihe Federalists. The railway, canal, state, Insurance, 
bank slock of America, what are ihey but so many moauments of indebtedness to 
England? * * Of course our owu prospects are deeply involved in these consid- 
erations. Our most extensive customers, by oppressive laxos, diirorential duties, aud 
poverty caused by the destruction ot their chief source of iueoine, will bo unable to 
sustain their wonted demand. Although we may get partial supplies of cotton, it 
will be mauy years before the gap made by the iailuro m the American supply will 
be made up. Every year we have new aud extensive competitors lor the raw mate- 
rial, aud the growth of our owu manufacturing population requires increased stocks 
to mid them employment. The late of the negro is the most desperate pruspeet of 
all. Mauy will become lawless marauders iu a country where practically there is no 
police. Tne hand of every while mau will be against theui; ihe Democrats of tbe 
North aud the Confederates iu the South will combine in inextinguishable haired io 
the Republican party; aud a nation, like a house divided against itself, will bo dis- 
tracted aud weak by the conspiracies and antipathies of faction. If the South bo sub- 
dued aud held by au fcXpcnsivc aruiy of occupation, the hrsi quarrel with Europe 
will see troops and tteeta at New urleaus and Charleston, and the whole of the South 
in revolt on the side of the enemy. If a compromise he i Ifected, the chains of the 
negro will be riveted more nrmiy iban ever; if ihe South be victorious, ihe Federal- 
ists will be ruined by theloss ol the Southern trade, the negro will be more oppress- 
ed, aud the North will have au implacable enemy that will call Europe to her aid 
wuenevor the Federalists renew the nabit of insolent bluster, without which it would 
Seem that Republicanism cau have no enjoyment ol political life. We are quite alive 
to the recuperative energies of a nation; out when these are systematically exercised 
iu dissipating its own sircugtu,uud deliberately destroying its owu resources, in wnat 
direction Uas elasticity an opening lo rebound r 

Currency — More Catechism for Nincompoops. 
What is a Standard? A standard is an object to serve as criterion to 

deleriuino some quality or properly m another object compared with it. What is 
money? .Money is a very precious commodity, usually bearing the Stamp of the Gov- 
ernment iu whose dumimon it Circulates, is it not tnis stamp that comers value upon 
it? Certainly uol; tne stamp forms merely aguarautoe agaiual fraud, and neilner adds 
lo uor detracts from us value. The value is in the material from which money is made, 
gold, silver and other precious ineiuls. Money is uol only a valuable commodity, but 
a standard) a measure oy which lo estimate the value of au other property aud mui cliau- 
dise whatsoever. Why should money be adopted as standard ol valuer Bocauoe Oy 
the Universal consent of civilized mankind, ihe precious melaiS have a certain intrinsic 
worih, aud ihe experience of ages has shown them to be, it not immutable, at least less 
liable to liuclualiuu lhau any other commodity. People taik ol keeping gold at home, 
iu California, what then? Such people are nincompoops unacquainted witu the air-iiKe 
elasticity ol money. Cold cau no more be hoarded in one country inan can Water bo 
piled into a permanent pyramid. Is it possible to have loo much goid in circulation ? 
It may be possible lor a short period until tne evil remedies Itself. What is paper 
money ? There is no such thing. It is au inexacl expression. Paper is no more money 
tnan a ticket /or soup is, but a represeululiou ol it — a token either lhat money has been 
paid or a promise tual mouey will be paid. Paper iu circulation, when issued under 
proper restriction, is both au economical and convenient medium of exchange. But 
when iu excess il undergoes, even when baaed upon positive vaiue, the same deprecia- 
tion that goid would, weie it not lor lhat universal appreciation of u by the world and 
tne electric-like facility with which it circulates throughout It. Is it not the prerogative 
ol Government absolutely to say what is money and is not money ? No, it is noi;Cov- 
erumeut may prescribe what K.iud may be legally circulated; il cau no more make that 
iuio money wuich is not such, lhau it cau by au acl of the Executive convert au

ol the North. A bungling manufactured story of this sort has recently beun set alloai, 
which, to ail sensible persons, la only proof the stronger of the desperate straits our 
Abolition rulers have got the country into. Why uou't they publish some of ihcso 
despatches? 

"It is a Long Lane which has no Turn." 

That "There ia reason in the roasting of eggs," Ave have no doubt. — 
Neither have we any doubt in our miud tbat there was reason in the 
workings of General Butler and his brothel in New Orleans, were the 
facts known. General Butlers worthy father was hanged in JVew Orleans 
some years since. JVIay nut this fact have had something to do with bis 
chivalrous couduct towards the women — ladies we mean — of that city t

And indeed nothing of public importance which could be shown on 
a Hap has been omitted. No effort and no expense have been spared 
in the endeavor to make this Map as perfect and full as it is possible. 
The work is artistic in execution and finish, and the Map will give at a 
glance more information than can possibly be otherwise obtained, ex- 
cept through much study and a great many sources not easily reached. 
It should be in the possession ot every School, whether Public or Pri- 
vate, every Office, Saloon, Hotel, Boarding House, and indeed in every 
house. To operators in Real Estate, and to all who have or desire a 
Homestead, it will be invaluable. It will give all persons, whether at 
home or abroad, foreigners or Americans, an accurate and comprehen- 
sive idea of the rapid development of the material and increasing pros- 
perity of San Francisco. The terms of subscription are as follows:—

The Foreign Press. 
The Press of Europe seems to think that the Northern and Southern 

Americans bad bolter be left to settle their own troubles amongst themselves. "No 
doubt, it is only justice to ourselves to have the lea.st possible intercourse with these 

amiabl6.partiea,and so PalmerstonandGurtschakoff decline the gratification of saving the 
Union at the expense of being maligueil for their pains." Such is the opinion entertained. 
They are therefore resolved to-'I'ay the United States ail the respect due to their 
National dignity, and let them pursue their career to the goal to which it in leading 
them. It is their august will and pleasure." Certainly we can expect no other language, 
for wo have proclaimed, ''Hands off." Seward has declared his intention to lake 
Canada; aud Traiu his intention to annex Ireland. A nice lime they'll have of itl 
Europe seems to think that sense will come with national exhaustion, aud that "There 
is more real force in the argument that tho North seems to be coming to a standstill;" 
that, iu short, "The ship is nearly wrecked by its drunken crew, and it is well if driv- 
ing i hum from the helm will save it." 



Guillotines by the Gross. 



It is not true that "Abraham the First" has imported "a large number 
of guillotines." It is equally untrue that the Rev. Thomas S. King has 
applied for the appointment of Executioner-in-chief. Our reverend 
and truly humane and christian friend prefers California gold to green- 
backs — even at par. 



The Fciuiy-n-Miicr «t Home. 

An Imaginary .Yurroliw Swjgrstri 6y th< rr)»irU of Ilcccnl Tremmdout Con/ta- 

The IVnny-a-Liner had finished his labors for the night, and having 

provided •eoMiloD for the breakfast table al ihe publto, calmly b.ii down t" bw own 

■upper. 

" I am anxious to express to the In tell l onl md Lflbctlonati partner of my exlst- 

bi remarked, "my oonvloltoa that tho ordinary portod of refreshment has 

.,-.] " 

"No Buob thing, Jm pretty wit'.-, "and don't harry me, there's a 

ill the rabbit." 
■ Do your observation Imply , my dear, thai tho banquet in oourao of preparation 
el the rabbit from the Cambrian Principality, or the four-footad quadruped 
from a seaport tiot u hundred miles fioui Ostund r'' 
" Welsh, Jim, dear." 

" So far from giving utterance to any (••'■lings of disappointment at tho substitu- 
tion of the less ii u tin s but more misiatury edible, my dear Jans, I am gratified 

tli.it upon the present occasion you should have selected the former, and I will only 

remark that the IftUt amount •>( procrastination the more Mitii-l'.iclory will be Uio 
..I 

"Two minutes more.JlM," said Ins wife, "and calm your mind by pouring out tho 
bum." 

" experience of the irregularities of feminine computation of tlmo, my dear, In- 
to to defer that operation until your culinary dutloa shall have been completed, 
as any oflbrveecenoo which may be generated by tho tranxfer of the llcjuor from ouo 
vessel to the otber will cortaiuly havo subsided hoforu your preparations will havo 
loro tted." 

"You're another," laughed his wife, setting tho hissing cheese before him, and 
giving him u playful box on the ears i>y way of grace. 

" I am disinclined to bolteve that the oldest h-tbiluc of tho Cheshire Cheese ever 
ill I r eased himself to a rabbit that better fulfilled the conditions prescribed by tho 
Bagea of nutrlmcntal lore," replied her husband, smiling. "Let mu trauafor a por- 
tion to your pluto." 

"A wee bit, dear. To tell the truth, I had something with tho kldB." 

,: That is a violation of the engagement, both expressed and implied, Jb.vxy, that 
our concluding meal should be taken simultaneously." 

" Well, I'm here, am I not, grumble r" 

"AS Hie immortal bird of Avon hits felicitously expressed it, you keep tho word of 
promise to tho ear and break it to the hope. But the quarrel is a very pretty quarrel 
as it stands, and let us drown all nnkindoess in tbe Uowiug bowl." 

"Ah ! mind my nice clean cloth I" 

"As {mother poet less familiar to the general public Ihau the sweet swan of Avon 
observes, 'A iittle water takes the Bin away.' " 

" Very fine, but you don't pay the washiug bills." 

*' B ise is tho slave that pays, that is to say except when ho remunerates tho pur- 
veyor of information for the sensational literature which ho furnishes, and makes 
tho basis of such remuneration the original quantity of matter supplied, not that to 
which the fastidiousness of his vitiated taste or tho urgencies of an advertising pub- 
lic induce him to condense the narrative or his contributor." 

"Anything up to-night, .liu, dear ? I hope so." 

" I am gratified to ho able to communicate the information that your anticipations 
aro doi doomed to disappointment. I was privately apprised by one of tho guardians 
of lac public peace, whose early intelligence I have frequently secured by a slight 
compensation, that much excitement prevailed hi the immediate vicinity of G ray's 
Inn Lane in consequence of a report that an establishment for the retail salo of spirit - 
uou3 liquors was in a stato of conflagration." 

" Giu-Rhop caught lire, eh ?" 

" Hastening thither, I was fortunato enough to recognise iu an intelligent official 
(who was bellowing, in a general manner, at the top of his voice, for any kind of as- 
sistance, but without specifying tho particular character of the aid desired) tho ro- 
spected beadle of a distant parish, who by a concatenation of circumstauces upon 
which it is not now necessary to dilate, happened to bo in the proximity of the estab- 
lishment. He obligingly favored me with Information which in addition to the resnltH 
of my own observation, I combined in a statement which I havo reason to believe 
will materially assist you in tho purchase of that elegant novelty in tho light of a 
bonnet that you have long been anxious to eliminate." 

" You are a dear old long-winded duck, and that's what you are," said his pretty 
wife, kissing him, "And now come to the fire aud have your pipe." 

"I recommend you as a preliminary arrangement to concentrate the devouring 
element, my dear." 

" Poke tho flro together? Do it yourself, lazy bones." 

And the meritorious couple sat down with their toes upon the fender for a conjugal 
gossip. 

0S3* The colored people celebrated Lincoln's Emancipation Procla- 
mation by assembling at Piatt's "Negropholis"' on the 14th inst. in num- 
bers not exceeding 600. In addition to the colored speeches, Rev. T. 
Starr King gave one, much to the gratification of the obsequious blacks; 
and although evidently oppressed both by his subjects and hearers, 
withdrew before the conclusion of the entire palaver, for the purpose 
of taking an airing round his garden and dampening his cambric with 
a bottle of "Lubin's Best," supplied by the agents, Keith «fcCo., of 
Montgomery street The olfactories of the divine having been well 
secured, an imposing ceremony concluded the day's diversions. A pro- 
cession having been arranged, the clothes worn at the "Negropholis" 
were decently interred in an adjoining paddock, to the deep regret of 
the chiffonier who, with hook and lantern, hoped on the same evening 
to have bagged his game at the usual heap of rubbish, without com- 
mitting the additional sacrilege of disinterring a lot of black clothes. 



A Discrepancy. 



In the ably-written financial articles of tbe Bulletin, the depreciation 
of paper money is chiefly attributed to its legimate cause — the over- 
issuance of a currency unredeemable in gold and silver; whilst in the 
leading editorial columns, every reason for it is set forth except this. 

The "Wool" Register. — In consequence of Mr. Lincoln's Emancipa- 
tion Proclamation, and consequent increased importance of the native 
crop of negro produce, a paper has been started in Sacramento, called 
significantly the "California Wine and 'Wool' Register." 

"Honest Abe." — Why thecontinued prefix oraffixof the word"honest" 
whenever the President's name is mentioned, unless it be that he is 
very dishonest (which a great many are beginning to believe), and all 
this contrary assertion is only intended as a blind to the gulled public? 

$&- Cotton is called King; but from the fact that no officer has been 
named who commanded tbe Rebel fleet which retook Galveston, we 
Buggest he be titled Commodore Cotton.

Homsteads Cheaper than Proposed under the Shafter Bill. 

UNDER the provisions of what is known as the Shafter Bill, it is proposed to sell the 
City Title to Homestead lots lor$25 to S20U each. 

The undersigned will sell homestead lots within the city limits of the city, and much 
nearer the centre of business than the lands covered hy the Shatter Hill, and places the 
party in immediate possession of the same without present trouble or prospective law- 
suits", for Shi to S-Ud each. The Title is absolutely perleet, being a Spanish grant, finally 
confirmed and patented by the United States. The shatter Hill respects this title, the city 
authorities respect it, the "District Courts and Supreme Court ot the State, as well as the 
District Court and Supreme Court ol the United States respect it— besides the title has 
been lorcver nuited by a final decree and judgment against the city — so that there is not 
even a cloud or shadow upon it Whoever purchases oue of these lots will buv a lot and 
not a lawsuit. 1IAKYEY S. iiKOWN.

cho was gran ted by the Mexican Government 
to JoseCornelioBernal; that he died, leav- 
ing two heirs, Carmen Subrian de Bern a 1, and 
his son , Jose Jesus Bernal ; that these latter 
presented their claim to the United States 
Land Commissioner, and that the title was 
there coulhmed to them, and also Anally in 
the Courts of the United States: after which 
a final survey was made, and that a patent, 
from the Unite. I Stales was issued to them 
on the 31st day of December, A. I). 1S57,

THE SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER. 



Helief for tlie Lancashire Operatives. 

We are glad to note that the subscriptions for the relief of the dis- 
tressed operatives of Lancashire is progressing most satisfactorily. In 
addition to the names of Dickson, De Woolf for $1000, and Faulkner & 
Bell for $500, as announced last week, we append names and sums re- 
ceived:— Cross & Co., $250; Koopmanscbap & Co., $250; Geo. Gordon, 
$250; Rogers, Myers & Co., S100; Dupuy, Foulkes& Co., $250; Barron 
& Co., $1000; D. Fraser, $300; Donald Davidson, $300; N. M. Roberts, 
$100;Fox&Porter, $100; R.Roxby, $100; Castle Eros., $50; P.Monro, 
$50, and Joseph A. Nicholson, $50: 

Is Lancashire liberal ? Outrace her, 

Giving two crowns to her one. 
Is Lancashire stingy ? Out-face her, 

Giving much to her none. 
Be it little or much, let's be striving, 

Give money, or blankets, or prayer — 
All but reasons for not giving, 

Though they be never so fair. 
Then be there no cry but one 

Heard through this struggle to live, 
The cry of the horse-leech alone — 
A sore cry of Give ! Give ! Give I 
Rich men, give of your millions, 

Poor men, let your mites be flung, — 
Lords and laborers, soldiers, civilians, 

Men, women, old and young. 
Give for love of your sister and brother, 

Give for your neighbor's shame: 
Give in rivalry of each other — 
'Twill be giving all the same. 
Love's gifts bring a blessing confest, 

And who knows but the baser giving, 
May at such a time be blest, 
And dead hearts touched to living !

^35" "Diplomatic Revelations" have in peculiar circles occasioned 
much sensation and speculation, certain bribes having been fruitlessly 
offered to obtain their authorship. We can only say the facts would 
have been verified, had not pre-emptor's claim of squatter's right inter- 
vened in matters all fixed. Female zeal and finesse are now employed 
on another field of diplomacy, as we understand, with but very little 
alteration in the programme— the Berlin-wool-flag-pattern allowing of 
all sorts of kaleidoscopic arrangements. Not questioning the final suc- 
cess of the labors bestowed on hymenial pursuits, we wish and antici- 
pate a speedy consummation of the happinesa.of all parties concerned, 
amongst whom is our old and constant friend, Mr. Gophir. a prominent 
character and diligent worker, who always possesses the tact of "being 
seen and not heard." Parturient monies. 



' Grosser and Grosser Still.' 



A Bordeaux paper gives credit to a grocer in that delightful dtyfor 
his ingenuity in letting the public know that he sells both Black and 
Green Tea. He has a large T on each shutter, one letter painted green, 
the other black. Pooh 1 This is nothing to the ingenuity of an English 
tea-dealer in the city, who to let the world knew that he sells the tea 
called Gunpowder, blows up his wife all day long. 

$£?• Dr. Sam Johnson, during the war for Independence, asks, "How 
is it that we hear the loudest yelps for liberty amongst the drivers of 
Negroes?" We may ask the same question to-day! Being an Anti- 
Slavery man, he gives as a toast. "Here's to the next insurrection of 
the negroes in the West Indies." Amiable man ! Vet how many North- 
ern men there are drinking to the next massacre of whites down South 
by the Negroes — excited by Abe Lincoln's Proclamation I 



Queen Victoria and the Royal Family. 
Eveiy loyal subject of Great Britain will be grateful to perceive that 
our beloved sovereign is restored to (he health and energy habitual to 
her. The Queen, having bestowed ample attention upon the artistic 
memorial of the Prince Consort, which is in course of erection in the 
South Kensington Gardens, lias assembled her family and guests to 
witness her own provision of a memorial of another kind, and of an 
interesting and personal character. Dor Majesty has planted an oak 
to mark the spot at which Prince Albert concluded his last day's shoot- 
ing, just before his illness. The tree will be known as the Prince 
Consort's Oak. and may remind a few readers of old poetry of some 
good lines now all but forgotten: — - 

Thou native oak, thou German tree, 

Kit emblem, too, of (Jerman wurthl 
Type of a nation brave and free, 

And worthy of its native earth. 

The marriage of the Prince of Wales is to take place in March, not 
April as has been stated. It will, therefore, be iu Lent. 

Special Brevities — Local and Select 

^3?** We cannot too much admire the conduct of Mrs. Mary Norman, 
who, at Whaley, England, hearing a window smashed at a quarter past three o'clock in 
the mormug, whilst feeding her baby, laid down her child, and declining to awake her 
husband, who was ill, took up a revolver that lay on [he table, went down stairs, and 
seeing by the light of the moon a man in the pantry and two outside, the aimed at the 
man inside, but her revolver missed Are; nothing daunted, however, she instantly fired 
another barrel and wounded the man in the shoulder, who was drawn out Of the win- 
duw and carried olfby his associates. Her self-collection and bravery would have dune 
honor to any man. If all wives were possessed of this indomitable Bpirit, or even all 
men, and would punish such miscreants on the spot, it would have far more effeot than 
alt the dilatory proceedings of law and police. The advice of a correspondent if well 
followed up, would in many instances bailie burglars: Lock up all doora and windows 
early; keep u sharp dog iu the bouse; a conspicuous light burning all night; a revolver 
ready loaded; keep your money at a bankers; and, if visited once, you will uot be very 
likely lo be troubled again. 

j^f- In the Law 3fagazine for November, an extract is given from 

Brougham's annual letter to Lord Rnndor on the Law business of last session. Among 
other thing* Lord Brougham say b:— "In America the View of the present is a? distress- 
ing as possible, of the grievous civil war now ravaging for above twelve months, with 
the utter disregard of human life ami of public credit. It is difficult to speak of so as 
not to ollend either— nay perhaps both parties, of whom one seems bent upon an iin- 
ro-ihility.. Rut at least let us hope that the imputation is groundless which would 
represent the Northern States as prepared to inliict upon their adversaries add upon 
humanity itself the only agravation whereof the deplorable contest is capable by ex- 
citingan rasuri^cftion of the slaves. Such a calamity is more to be dreaded by the 
friends of that unhappy race than by those of their masters for the chief sufferings 
would be theirs. Nor let it ho imagined that wbeu the war shall happily cease, its 
evils will be nt an end, either for ihe Americans themselves orfor others. Armed men 
in hundreds of thousands will remain, inured to slaughter, incapable of subordination. 
impatient of peace— their own Government less secure than aver, and our colonies will 
1 Itbor.' 

%£r- Like his royal cousin of Dahomy, the sovereign of Benin has 
somewhere about lour thousand wives, most of them stout, handsome negressoa 
rhese, formed into troops, constitute bia bodyguard; but win-n off duty, make pots and 
pipkins oi clay, gourd bottles, calibash basins, wooden spoons, and ladies of all sorts 
and Hiaee, which they expose lor sale in ihe market-place at their own prices; for Lhese 
Amazons enjoy the entire monopoly Of this branch of trade, and as a hint to those who 
would encroach upon their rights, there hang by iron hooka uponagibbotlhe headless 
trunks o( seven men, in a (rightful state of decay, with buzzards feeding on the frag- 
ments that drop from tbein as they welter in the burning sunshiue. 

$&- The British royal family in 1761 ran loose about the world, and 

people knew not how lo treat them, nor they how to be treated. One sunnier, when 

the Duke oi York was at Southampton, there was a clergyman in the neighborhood 
with two very handsome daughters. He had soon wind of them, and dropped in for 
some reason or another, and called again and again, and grew familiar enough to cut 

a bone of their mutton. At last ho said to the father, "Miss lend,' a mighty 

confined life here, always at home. Why can't you let one of them take an airing with 
mo now and then In my chaise?" "Ah, sir," said the parson, "do but look at them— a

Greece, but the English Government! on bis behalf, declines the honor, from a belief 
that Foreign Powers would accuse England of usiug Greek ambition for her own inter- 
ests. The Times says;— "No] Let Greece choose not a boy, but a grown man of mind 
and experience— one who will be able to bring order out of the confusion which now 
prevails, and, by the exercise of his own mature judgment, to control factious politi- 
cians, and a restless and half-instructed multitude."

$&- In a lesson in parsing, the sentence, "Man courting in capacity

Rebellion ! 

How can people be so ungrateful ! Yesterday a meeting was held 
at Piatt's Hall, to show sympathy with the Poles, who are in rebellion 
against our dear friends the Russians. Russia is the friend of liberty; 
Russia's conduct is a noble contrast to that of England and Franco 
(vide San Francisco papers about a year ago). What is the meaning of 
this change in sentiment ? We sympathized with Russia when England 
and France went to war with her. to prevent her taking Turkey from 
the Turks, and now, lo ! when an unholy psi^jion breaks out in her 
dominions, we sympathize with the rebels. 3 a meeting be called 
for the purpose of expressing our sympathy with Russia in her present 
troubles; we ought to know how to sympathize with her, being in 
similar distress; and let us pray that the' noble Czar may be able to 
crush this unholy rebellion, and preserve the Union of Poland and 
Russia. It is all bosh about the Poles having grievances; they are very 
well off if they would only think so. However the case may stand, it 
ill-becomes Union men to sympathize with rebels who strive to rend 
the union between themselves and our noble ally and firm firiend. — 
We are Union to the backbone ; we go in for the Union right or wrong, 
all sorts of Unions, any sorts of Unions. "The Union must and shall 
be preserved !" is our cry, and that noble inspiration is re-echoed on 
the plains of Russia. If we sympathize with rebels against Russia, will 
it not be most rightful retaliation in the Czar to acknowledge the 
Southern Confederacy? Certainly it will. We do not believe a word 
about the cruelties practised by Russians, the Quicksilver Mines, the 
knout, elc; all we know is, the Emperor of Russia has always been 
a knout-and-knout good friend to us, and one good turn deserves 
another. 

105- The French Government insists on the complete independence 
of Poland, with the Duke of Leutchtenberg as a Sovereign King. This 
new programme France has just announced to the Ambassadors of the 
Great Powers at Paris.

Our Letter From Wasnoe. 

ViKui.NiA ClTT, May 20, 1863. 

Since my last I have been absent, taking a tramp through the Devil's 
Gate and Gold Hill Districts, and was much pleased with my visit at 
Silver City. I visited the "Emigrant." now known as the Table Moun- 
tain G. and S. M. Co. In their shaft they have struck the lead, about 
ten feet wide, of good mill rock. Chandler, who has a contract to take 
out 500 tons, informs me that it will go S100 to the ton to the full ex- 
tent of the ledge. Dan Hunt and Joe Woodworth have bought,— the 
former now owning about one-fifth the whole mine. Mr.Hutchings in- 
forms me that not two weeks ago he was about contracting to sink a 
shaft, but weakened, and is now regretting his want of nerve. The dis- 
covery of this ledge has given a new impetus to the mines in this Dis- 
trict. The owners of the Wm. Penn and the O'Connel are in very high 
spirits. The latter will have trouble with the St. Louis. The former, 
I think, is clear of any dispute; and they will, inside of thirty days, 
strike the ledge. The only drawback is the management in San Fran- 
cisco which is in the hands of one James H. Ray, formerly a dru'gguit 
in New Y'ork. The stock would be in better request, if riot ipr'this. 
I visited the San Diego Mine, in the Blue Siilphur Springs District. 
This mine is under the management uf Mr. Freeborn, who understands 
what he is about. My time was short, an,d I intend to pay another visit 
soon. They have an incline 235 feet deep, and have been working in 
decomposed quart, j but the character has changed to solid quartz, and 
improved. m-iicfi in yolpe. This mine is well worth, the attention Of 



THE SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER* AND 



capitalists. There are several other mines in this District that I will 
examine on my next visit. 

The mines at Gold Hill are doing well. This Hill, until lately has 
been free from squatters and interlopers. A gang, headed by the 
Agent of Wells, Fargo & Co., at this place, have been locating Iront, 
back and middle leads, and claiming everything producing metal. Such 
men should not be tolerated; and, if I mistake not the growing feeling 
among the bona fide citizens of this place, there will be a general clean- 
ing out of them, as there was of the "Hounds'' of your city in '5U. The 
greatest set-back these interlopers have had was the termination of the 
late Yellow Jacket suit. On my way up I stopped at the Chollar; but 
nothing has been done; — waiting the return of Mr. DeLand with the 
neeessary machinery. It will be late fall before they will be able to 
complete the arrangements, and by next spring tbe question of whether 
they have a mine within their stakes will be known; until then stock- 
holders must use their own judgment in taking the chances. The Sav- 
age is improving every day, and can now take rauk as one of the first 
mines on tbe lead. Mr. Morrow is proud of his mine and his work; — in 
fact it is the best work on the Hill. He is now taking out a surplus of 
ores, over and above supplying the Central and Sapphire Mills, and 
before 1st prox. he will be able to set two or three other mills at work. 
Mr. McCreery paid us a visit this week. He took a good look at the 
Savage, and in his most emphatic language, pronounced it the model 
mine in the Territory. Mr. Castle, of your city, was also here, and was 
much pleased with this mine and Gould & Curry, and any one doubt- 
ing the correctness of what I have heretofore written, let them call on 
him or any other gentleman who has visited this place; or, the better 
plan would be, to make confirmation doubly sure by coming up them- 
selves. Let all ''doubling 'Thomasses^ come to see and feel for them- 
selves. I think the Washoe skeptics would be terribly thinned out. 
The Gould & Curry, owiug to the great desire on the part of every one 
who comes here to visit this mine, have been forced to make a rule of 
allowing visitors to enter only at certain hours. This has caused some 
grumbling, but no one of sense will object to complying wiih this rule. 
In consequence of tins I did not pay my respects to it. The stockhold- 
ers should get $1;")0 per foot this month, and $200 every month after 
this. They are sinking in the shaft, and the ore continues fabulously 
rich. The work in their lower tunnel is progressing finely, and inside 
of thirty days will be in the lead. There is no doubt of it continuing 
as rich at this point as above, and the stock will soon be up to my fig- 
ures. Mr. Earl has been so occupied that I did not have the pleasure 
of meeting him this time, and 1 learn that he goes below this morning, 
and will give a good report to ttie directors. The California and Cen- 
tral are doing good work — the former is not taking out ore at this time, 
as they cannot dispose of it; but they are doing such work in the mine, 
that when tbey can dispose of their ore, they can take it out in large 
quantities. The Central are taking out about thirty tons per day; 
about five per cent, is first class, and balance second class ore. As 
soon as they get through with their contract on Savage ores, tbey will 
go to work on their first class ores, and sell the second class to the 
neighboring mills. The Ophir is doing a good business in taking out 
ores. Their new president is no doubt a man of ability, but he must 
learn to control himself, and not expect to drive every man into his 
way of thinking. A spoonful of treacle will catch more flies than a 
barrel of vinegar. In my opinion, he has made one or two mistakes in 
his management. His lawyer, Mr. Stewart, should have known better, 
but he has a good cause and will win in the long run. Mr. Ueidesheimer 
is now occupying the same position as did george o. whitney, in the 
Sierra Nevada suit. He is vulnerable in as many points, and his testi- 
mony will not amount to a hill of beans among a regiment of famished 
soldiers. I am not pleased with the management of tbe outside legal 
business of this Company, and would recommend the Company to em- 
ploy some one who will command the respect of all parties here. — To 
obtain the necessary testimony, and, in a word, to properly represent 
the Company, as far as her lawsuits are concerned. The suit of Mos- 
cow and Madison is now on trial, and other disagreement may be look- 
ed for. There has been some excitement on Cedar Hill. Gottschall, 
one of the contractors to prospect the Meredith Company's claim, has 
located another ledge, and put in tbe location Judge Baldwin and oth- 
ers. They say that they have $300 prospect. I am surprised that such 
men will allow their names to be used for what is clearly a black mail 
arrangement. The Uloa struck are but the feeders of the main ledge; 
but this man Gottschall has a partner who has lately sold out, and he 
wants to force the Company to buy him out at an extravagant price. 
And this is the ruse, and for which purpose he bae put in the names of 
such as Baldwin; and I will see what course these genthimen pursue, 
and will note it in proper time. 



From an Occasional Correspondent. 

Virginia City, May 20, 1863. 

Our principal mines are in an exceedingly flourishing condition at the 
present. The Gould & Curry Co. have "struck it" in the lower tunuel, 
and every claim on that lead has experienced a healthy advance in 
value in consequence. The Gould & Curry, the Savage and the Potosi, 
are turning out great quantities of rich ore daily — enough, it seems to 
me, to build up and support the Territory, were every other mine in it 
to fail. One of the most southerly companies on the Gould & Curry 
lead (the San Francisco) struck the ledge last Saturday, after sinking a 
shaft to a depth of 207 feet. This will be pleasant news to a portion 
of your readers, since a commaudiug interest in this mine is owned in 
your city. The rock looks well; specimens of it have been sent down 
to the Bay, to the President of the Company. The men have cut into 
the ledge nine ieet, and will go on through it. to ascertain its width. — 
This strike was all that was wanting to send the San Francisco stock to 



a lofty figure. The next claim south (the Golden Gate), on the same 
lead, is progressing satisfactorily. The company cut through the 
ledge — tbirty-two feet thick — at a depth of only fourteen feet below 
the surface, and continued the shaft, designing to sink 300 feet before 
drifting to the ledge again. At a depth of eighty feet they commenced 
cutting spurs or "feeders'' to the vein, which produce rock of remark- 
able richness in silver. A promise of this kind may generally be de- 
pended on, and it will be safe to predict that when the ledge is again 
reached, it will prove to be another Potosi. You must remember that 
this shaft is being sunk through the highest " chimney," the greatest 
upheaval, on the Gould & Curry ledge, and it would be strange indeed 
if it resulted in barrenness. I would suggest that, as the men are now 
working in a handsome clay casing — which is no longer dry — it might 
not be a bad idea to drift through it to the ledge at once. This stock 
is also owned principally in San Francisco; and I will do the company 
the justice to say they are working the mine in a very energetic and 
substantial manner. As usual, mining and business of all kinds were 
brisk in Gold Hill. The Yellow Jacket, having triumphed in its most 
important lawsuit, is rising in the esteem and confidence of the public. 
I was told that iu consequence of bad air in the tunnel, work had to be 
suspended on the Overman before the ledge was reached ; the recent 
depression in this stock is owing to this fact alone. It will bloom 
again soon. The Belcher is still turning out rich rock, and growing in 
popular favor. As we were out on a mere flying tour of inspection, 
we lingered but a little while in Gold Hill, and drove on through Silver 
City and down to Dayton, where we remained an hour, transacting 
private business, and set out again for Virginia, by way of Six Mile 
Canon. Dayton used to be a milling town altogether, but they speak 
the mining dialect there also, now, and the incorporation of mining 
companies to work in the Palmyra and tbe Brown &. Murphy Districts, 
is a matter of daily occurrence. Branching off from the Rogers Mill, 
in Six Mile Canon, we went and took a look at the Tri-Union Compa- 
ny's grounds, and groped, by tbe dim light of a candle, into their tun- 
nel. Work was going on industriously, but the back ledge — tbe 
Cherokee— had not been struck yet. The front and middle leads are 
the best, anyhow, I think. Tbe former — the Lady Franklin— is ten feet 
wide where it is cut in the tunnel, is well defined, and will pay right 
along (as ascertained by a working test) from $70 to $134 to the ton, 
principally in silver. The rock is shelly and easily excavated, and 
fifty tons of it could be taken out in twenty-four hours, A contract is 
on foot for the crushing of a hundred tons of ore from tbe Lady Frauk- 
lin, and I will venture to promise a heavy return from it. After 
stopping a while at the magnificent Gould &, Curry mill, further up the 
canon, we ceased our miuing investigations uud ended our pleasure 
excursion by hurrying back to the city. Nevada.

THE SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER AND 



The News Letter Independent Ticket. 

The influence of the News Letter in political matters is so power- 
ful that we point to our recent exertions in the municipal election with 
great pride and vain glory. Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher, all 
is vanity. Of all the men whose cause we advocated, not one was 
elected, but have gone to that bourne from whence no traveler returns. 
Those for whom we went in strongest came out of the smallest end of 
the horn; even Swift was beat and Porter was elected, because the 
race is not with the swift or the battle with the strong. Young, the 
man-milliner, beat the best man on the ticket, and so for the next two 
years he will sell bonnets and record deeds, and though he toils not, 
neither does he spin, yet Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed in 
such loves of bonnets as he sells. The People's party are triumphant. 
and the Citizeu's ticket gone to smash, because the Irish didn't play 
fair, and of such is the kingdom of Heaven. The opposition party made 
a great fuss and talked big. but has now goue to the place of departed 
spirits, and reposes with Lazarus in Abraham's bosom, for their house 
was not built upon a rock, but upon the sand, and a house divided 
against itself cannot stand. The People's party is a very good thing 
for insiders, but it is better to be a doorkeeper in the house of the Lord 
than a dweller in the tents of wickedness; it is better to be a dweller 
in the tents of wickedness than to be kept standing out in the cold. 
We desired very much to beat the People's party, so did the Morning 
Call, our ally; but Paul may plant and Apollos may water, but God 
giveth the increase, and, as illustrated in the case of the Morning Call, 
the Devil does not always take care of its own. It went whoring after 
strange Idols, and imagined vain things, and great it was in abomina- 
tion, aud stunk in the nostrils of the people. Its abuses became so 
monstrous and its arrogance so insupportable, that endurance ceased 
to be a virtue, and the people ought to have spewed it out of their 
mouth as an unclean thing, for I will visit the sins of the fathers upon 
the children to the third and fourth generation of those that love me, 
and show mercy unto those that despitefully use me and shuu my com- 
mandments. Demster, Dibblce and Thomas were its leaders, the bul- 
letin and Alia were its organs. Parson Lacey prayed for it, and all 
Front street cried amen, for the lion and the lamb shall lie down to- 
gether and a little child shall lead them into the broad path which 
leadeth to destruction, where the worm dieth not and the fire is not 
quenched. Wash Bartlett, of Georgia, was clerk, and the Mayor was 
not sound on the Union, aud Bohen came from Baltimore, and all the 
chivalry voted for it; Union citizens should have seen the dodge and 
repudiated the whole concern at the polls, and great would have been 
the overthrow thereof; and all the stars sung together for joy and play- 
ed upon the harp of a thousand strings, spirits of just men made per- 
fect. This party at every election has resorted to bribery and corrup- 
tion to carry its euds, and though confessedly a purity paTty, it stuck 
at nothing. It was filled with lies and abominations and all manner of 
uncleanliness. It was like a whited sepulcher, fair without, but with- 
in full ol dead men's bones. The nominating convention gave all the 
offices cercsius j>arluccs friends and broken-down merchants, and every 
body that belongs to it expects to get an office in due time, so they 
throw their bread upon the waters where they shall find it (soaked 
bread) after many days; and when they bought voters they did not let 
the right hand know what the left, hand doefh. but poured out their 
money like water, which brought forth seed an hundred fold, and made 
the waste places to bloom and the desert to blossom like a rose. Fitch, 
of the Bulletin, denounced everybody who made a good thing out of 
the State Treasury or the City Government, forgetting when he was 
State Printer, and thanked God he was not a sinner like unto these 
Sadducees; and the associate editor took the Devil up into a high 
mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the earth, and said unlo 
him, fall down and worship me and all these things will I give unto 
you; and the Devil said, get behind me, old Nesbit. you infernal squat- 
ter, I don't believe in your title; and he was gathered to his fathers 
and buried in the cave of Macpelah, which Abraham had bought for 
thirty shekels of silver. And so the thing is over, and we do not have 
another election for several weeks. Blessed interregnum, millennial of 
quiet. 

2&B~ We regret that, in our issue of last week, we published as an 
extract from the opinion of Judge Hoffman, in the case of The United 
States v.rsus Roland, what was in fact an editorial comment of tbe 
Alta California. The passage in Judge H's opinion which probably 
suggested the Alta } s observations was as follows : — 

" But it may be doubted whether the Supreme Coarf will adhere to the rule thus 
laid down. The Inter cases seem 10 justify the inference Hint, when the point is 
again presented-, the rule will in its application to future eases receive important quali- 
fications ccrUiinly, the case at bar pics tut a Uie objections to its adoption iii the 
strongest light." 

It will be seen that there is nothing in this language in the slightest 
degree disrespectful to the Supreme Court, or unlit to be used by an 
inferior Judge with reference to the Supreme Tribunal. 

Re crossing the Rappahannock. 

The local papers, the subservient indorsers of every filthy lie that is 
6ent "over the wires" for our better stultification, have filled whole 
columns in deacussions as to whether Hooker had "recrossed" the Rap- 
pahannock or not. In our mind it is evident he did— ''and that pretty 
quick [ly] too!" 

3&3~ It appears by the latest European papers received here, that a 
formidable batch of Federal agents are now swarming all over England, 
calling meetings, purchasing editorials, and enlisting the members of 
every church and sect. 



The French Colony in Algeria. 

The question of the settlement of lands in Algeria, which the Em- 

por. in true Imperial fashion, took on himself to decide a few weeks bnck by a letter to 
the Governor-General, is creating profound agitation in tbe colony, and presents grave 
economic aud political diticulties. One of the most learned economists, who is at tho 
same time one of the most brilliant writers of the day, has discussed the matter with 
great clearness and ability in a manuscript treatise which he has had the kindness to 
communicate to me, and from which I am permitted to make tho following extract: 
"The acquisition of Algeria," he writes, "has not been a successful operation for 
France. Tho French have been there thirty-two years, have spent upwards of 80,000, 
000Z sterling, deduction made of the sums they have got back, and in definitive their 
establishment has not yet attained the veritable basis of duration, that is to say a 
population sufilcing for its wants by its own labor. If we deduct the army of occupa- 
tion, which is 63,000 meu, we sbalf And that the European population is o'nly 103.000, 
of whom 112.000, making about 30,000 families, arc French. And if we lake from the 
latter tbe civil functionaries living on the Budget, and tho persons living on the expense 
made by those functionaries and the army, the number of veritable colonists, farmers, 
trademen, workmen, who discover and turn to account the resources ofanew country, 
will be found very low. Tho military rule and the abuse of administrative discipline 
have checked the growth of the colony, but another reason has contributed thereto. — 
Although the country is vast, there is a scarcity of land. After the conquest, in order 
to prevent cause of collision between the conquerors and the natives, the former con- 
tented themselves with confiscating the domains of the Dey, and besides prohibited 
purchases of land which the European speculators wished to' make from the natives. — 
The Government "believed the Dey 'a domain large enough to suffice for a long time to 
the wants of cultivation. But they were soon exhausted; the good lands were con- 
ceded to privileged persons, the rest (which were either sterile or not easy of access) 
wero only of nominal value. On the whole, in thirty-two years only about 960,000 
acres have been granted to Europeans, As to the conquered people, who arc about 
2,967,000 in number of different races, they have remained in possession of the land. 
But whether or not they are the legitimate owners of it is a question not yet decided. 
Private property docs not exist among the Arabs. Each tribe has the right of common 
over a certain tract limited by tradition. Cultivation is made in common. The chiefs 
take the largest part of tho crops, allowing the remainder, generally about a fifth, to 
the producers. This system is a sort of commission, in which force and cunning play 
a large part. And it explains the degradation into which the Arab races have fallen. 
The chiefs of tribes are descendants of old aristocratic families, or more frequently aro 
parvenus who have risen by favour of tho French authorities. They have been al- 
lowed to oppresB their countrymen, and some of them have become very rich. 



— "I like this plainness bettor 
Than false mock-passion, speech or letter." — Htoibkas. 

"We know all about the "Rebels," but not one single reliable fact 
about ourselves. "Rebel sources" supply us with full details of the 
innumerable misfortunes that are momentarily overtaking them. What 
a misfortune it is these "rebel sources" do not supply us with some 
facts in regard to our own army. Malignant people think that loyal 
facts and rebel facts, being both manufactured at Washington, are 
equally false. It may be so. This war is, it strikes us, dying out rap- 
idly. The majority of the people North and South have got enough of 
war. The present administration never properly estimated the difficul- 
ties of the case, and have but exasperated to an implacable hatred the 
Southerners and disgusted the Northerners. In the South we fiud de- 
termination, in the North indifference. A fanatical minority rules; 
there is no man at the helm; and we are drifting — "God knows where." 
The truth being withheld from us is excusable; but being trifled with 
and inundated with detestable lies, to us out here in California, can 
have no justification. The fighting Irish are all "chawed up," and 
"General" Meagher has resigned; tbe "cowardly Dutchmen" are dis- 
gusted, and Sigel is "cooling his heels." Meagher is and was a mere 
"dummy;" Sigel is and was a first rate officer; but then he is a detested 
foreigner, and "native talent" must be protected. It would never do 
to put a more "Dutchman" in supreme command, no matter how com- 
petent; better a thousand armies were annihilated! Meanwhile the 
telegraph is jubilant over the fact that fifty dollars in gold will buy one 
hundred dollars in "greenbacks;" and politicians, bummers, contrac- 
tors, "Generals" and "squirts," are making their "eternal pile" off the 
headless multitude, and the country being precipitated into the bot- 
tomless pit of bankruptcy. 

The Scoundrel Press. 

Not the least extraordinary feature of this hopeless, cruel, and dis- 
graceful war, is the peculiar fact, that every stretch of power, every 
unconstitutional, arbitrary and unjust act, instantly calls forth from 
the Yankee Press salvos of rapturous applause ! We do not know any- 
thiog about the Southern Press, except it be the details of Union vic- 
tories "derived from rebel sources," which, if true, show plainly the 
delight they too find in describing tbe ruin of their own people. Tho 
Northern and Southern editors, however, sink into insignificance — as 
liars and knaves — when compared with those that curse California; — 
beasts who never cease in their endeavor to deceive the people, and 
trample on truth and decency. 

Brown's Dye. 

A correspondent wishes to know if the above article— first brought 
to the notice of the public through the columns of an evening paper — 
was the dye used by the Rev. Deputy Cnshman, when he transformed 
the "crown of glory" that once adorned his head into the shining locks 
of puppyism; and whether there is any truth in the report, current at 
the Custom House, that upon a careful analysis of the article made by 
Appraiser Bridge, he found the component parts to be: 40 per cent, 
snivelling hypocrisy, 30 per cent, base ingratitude, 15 per cent, insuf- 
ferable puppyism, 13 per cent, flunkyism, with a trace of something to 
which the analytical operator has given the name of "Dye-nasty." 

J £®~ Mr. "Waklee, formerly of the firm of Waklee & Charles, will 
to-day proceed to Virginia City, and from thence to the Esmeralda 
District, Silver Mountain, and. in fact, to all the metalliferous districts 
of that neighborhood. The party will be accompanied by Mr. S. B. 
Whippel and friends— their appointments being complete, and well 
worthy their position, experience and wealth.

How to Beat the Peoples Party. 

Being infinitely independent in polttlOB, ftB in evervlliinp else, wo 
give the "("ui^ns" ■ W\\ hints w irh nuiv pTfl tliem B victory over tho 
••ri-t.pio" si tho next Municipal EHeotloD, If our suggestions bo fol- 
lowsa. Let: OrguibntioD I without that, even a real majority ia cer- 
tain to be defeated. The •■People's I\uiy" are thoroughly organized, 
and have been for BSTen years. They thus are able to make every 
point tell in their favor. The ''Citizen's Party" had no organization, 
and therefore made no point tell. 2d: Money I The "People"' had 
plenty <>t it— the "Citizens'' very little. The former were able to buy 
up the grog-shops and the hireling ticket-peddlers and scratchers, and 
tiny did BO. All the Daahawaya of the People's Party readily invoked 
the aid of rum and whiskey. — §0 did they of the other party, as far as 
they had cash to buy votes with •■tangleleg* 1 and strychnine, and con- 
vert licpior bars into bars of public opinion. They were only second 
to their Opponents through lack of grand cash. Organization and 
126.000 judiciously appropriated would have elected the Citizen's 
Ticket. 3d: Form a Vigilance Committee; drive out of the City fifty or 
a hundred ballot-box stuffers and scoundrels, then allow them to return, 
and they will all work for those who expatriated them. This is just 
what the People's Party have done. All the roughs and the ruff-scuffs 
whom they threatened with death, shipped off and pardoned, are now 
their obedient tools. Had Mike Brannigan been in town, and not in 
jail, he would doubtless have been one of the most active of the 
patriotic "People."' All parties inevitably become corrupt as they 
continue in power. The only safety is turning each other out as often 
as possible. As morality and honor have no connection with politics 
and parties under our system of government, the fear of defeat is the 
only check upon rascality in office. Give any party a surety of a long 
lease of power, and it will abuse it. — Wherefore we are always iu 
favor of the outs as against the ins. Give a man one term of office, — 
his hopes of re-election may prevent him from stealing, — but don't 
trust him the second time— he'll steal if you do. 4th: "Assume a vir- 
tue if you have it not." In this way play the People with their own 
weapon. ''In hoc signo vinces" It has helped your antagonists, why 
should it not you? 5th: Try to outlie the People and their organs. — 
It may prove a difficult job; but if you attend regularly the stated 
preaching of the Gospel'' you may, by studying the JiulMin and imi- 
tating the deaeons of the church, succeed, tith: Vote as many times 
as possible, and hire others to do the same. These suggestions if 
adopted, will certainly beat the People's Parly. 

Our Coso Correspondence. 

Little Lake, May 12th, 1863. 

Mr. Editor : — In my last I promised to give you an account of some 
of the leads outside the Josephine. I visited the Wisconsin, the other 
day. and found it to be much superior to anything I have yet seen in 
the district (outside Joscy). It is well defined, and has widened out to 
two feet, the gold quite vi-ible in the rock. I understand it is owned 
by the Lotta Mills. Another lead, the Abe Lincoln, also owned by 
the same Mills, promises to turn out very rich. I prospected some of 
it, and found over two bits in a pound of rock I pounded up and 
washed out. The proprietors of the Lotta Mills have the commanding 
interest in nearly all the best leads. It is a shame they do not work 
them, or incorporate, and let some one else have a chance to do so. — 
That is all that is needed to bring this, the richest District I was ever 
in, before the public. Your old friend, John Middleton, Esq., is on his 
way here; he will soon burry up things at the Mills. Wadleigh is 
getting his pans set up, and things will look like getting to work in a 
day or two. 1 hope John Middleton will see the necessity of getting 
a mill for the Josephine; as it it is, the Lotta gets all the profits of the 
mine, paid as they are for crushing, etc. More next week; the ex- 
pressman is just starting. Yours truly, Coso- 

_^" The Greeks having found a King in the brother of the Princess 
of Wales, will be very soon wanting a Queen; and although the treaty 
obligations among the European Powers prevented a British Prince 
from accepting the proferied throne, there is nothing to prevent a Brit- 
ish Princess from sharing it with a King regnant. Who knows, there- 
fore, but that the English Princess Helena or Louise may yet be Queen 
of Greece, taking with her as a marriage "tocher" the Ionian Islands? 

$®* A suit was commenced on Thursday last by F. D. Batchelor, 
against Ira P. Rankin, Collector of U. S. Customs, for damages for false 
imprisonment, in seizing Batchelor on the South Farralone Islands and 
removing him to San Francisco, on board the steamer Shubrick. The 
claim is for $50,000.

treated in an article to appear in the Pacific Minuco Journal on next

Oak Knoll Views. 
Before nj are ipeotmeni of a Ml ol \ [em of *•( tnk Knoll Farm and 
Villa, Photographs I Sketchee, by an Artist Mend i 

late Proprietor, J. A oomprlae b Photosraphlo 

Portrait of Mr. * toborn and views oi his buildings] grovea, "the Etoost," 
Park, the spot and Bnrroundlngfl where he waa muxderedL his gr re 
beneath the grand old oaks, and other localities of great Enteral and 
much beauty, mounted on photographic) oarda for allium*, in all, some 
1200 or 15U0, partly arranged in seta of in or 12, each accompanied by 
the portrait of the lamented deceased. They are a labor of love, by 
one who knew intimately and prized apprecialiugly the late proprie- 
tor of that beautiful model Kami, and who has, at his own t-xpenae, 
had his sketches thus photographed and prepared for the benefit of the 
bereaved family. They will be presented to the "Committee of Col- 
lections,"' to be disposed of by them to the best advantage, as the 
Friend and Artist's contribution to the Osbom Fund. They are an el- 
egant series, exhibiting admirably the natural nnd artificial beauties of 
one of the choicest spots in all California. They should be in the al- 
bum of every lover of rural architecture, and trees, and shrubs, and 
flowers, which make it most beautiful. No friend of J. W. Osborn 
should fail to obtain a set of these graceful and affectionate tributes to 
his worth, which a manly heart has produced and dedicated to his 
memory, like the immortelles that love and sorrow hang upon the tomb 
of the departed. An appreciation in proportion to their artistic merit 
and the noble object and spirit which produced them, will make them 
tho means of la gely increasing the fund being raised for the benefit of 
the widow and orphans of a man who did so much for California, and 
merited so much the respect, love and gratitude of her citizens. The 
Photographic Portrait is true to the very life of the subject — one of the 
very best we have ever seen produced. If the spirits of the dead ever 
re-visit the places of their earthly abode, we think that next the pres- 
ence of his family and his farm, these views of the latter would give 
the soul of our deceased friend the greatest delight. They are not 
hurried productions. Most of them are from sketches made at the re- 
quest and during the life of Mr. Osborn, and which received his admir- 
ing approval. They are every way worthy of the subject, the object, 
the occasion a:d the artist. 



The Tariff of Kisses. 



A French journal gives the report before a Justice de Paix of a 

claim nude uti an actor ol one of the small theatres of tho suburbs of Paris, for a, 
certain number of kisses, and a certain amount of tender {squeezing on the Stage, Wo 
gel to know exactly by this amusing incident of real Ufa tlio cost of a theatrical kiss, 
aceordiug to the dramatic laws of the French stage. One M. Narcisse appears before a 
Justice of the peace, and, addressing the Judge, so ye — "Monsieur le Juge, I am a dra- 
matic actor. I play the parts of lovers in a theatre of the Banlleue. My parts oblige 
me to be extravagantly passionate, excited, and enthusiastic. I'm obliged occasional- 
ly to Invo women of nil aires;, of all conditions of lile, actively and persevering ly , BOmo- 
limes fur a couple of hours together. Love-making may Income laborious. Monsieur 
le .luge, and even repulsive anil annoying, if one is obliged to make love. Well, sir, 
and will you believe it. all my fire, my devotion, my artistic amorous skill, so un- 
ceasingly nddressed to the pit, has got me into grief."' Judge: "How so?" Narcisse: 
"Parblen! I gain only lOOf. a month for running away with young ladies, making lovo 
to confirmed coquettes, and often seducing unsuspecting innocence, and they want to 
make mo pay 150T. for articles delivered." Juge: "Articles delivered? and pray what 
were they?"' Narcissc: "Kisses (much laughter) . 150f. for one man to pay for such 
trifles! That is what M. Valsin demands of me for , in fact, kissing his wife on the 
singe whilst playing my role." Judge: "How is this?'' Valsin: "It is a very simple 
afliiir. There are certain regulations which belong to all theatres ou the subject in 
question. Art. 1 says, 'when an actor playing his roU is called upon to kiss a lady, 
he shnll only appear to do so.' Art. 2. 'Any actor who shall really kiss an actress 
without previous lormal consent, shall bo lined 5f.' Art 3. 'Pressing sincerely to LllO 
heart pays a line of 2L 60c. Now, Narcissc has vigorously embraced my wife 10 
times, and unmistakably kissed her 25 times, for which I demand 150f." Narcisse: 
"The price is beyond all reason !'' (Laughter.) Valsin: "I demand that sum, accor- 
ding to the dramatic law." Narciasc: "Come, let us compromise the matter; there 
are faults ou both sides." Valsin: "Good I" Narcisse: "I stole 25 kisses. Well, 
then, I offer to return them I" Here the Court lost all gravity, and tho judge dis- 
missed the case, referring the matter to a higher court of justice. 

Harrison's Lifting and Force Pump. 
The Harrison Lifting and Force Pump was invented during the early 

part of last year; aud, after much thought and careful attention, and continued and 
very costly experiments, it was only perfected at the commencement of the present 
year. The pump is an oscillating pump, the oscillating movement being obtained by 
an eccentric. It is very simple in its construction — no small pieces, no valves, no 
packing, and the wearing surfaces are all very large. The main advantages in tho 
pump are, that it is very little liable to wear or get out of order; that it docs not choke; 
that for its capacity it is very light and cheap; that the same pump which throws ono 
hundred gallons a minute, by using a little more power, will throw one thousand gal- 
lons per minute. It is very applicable for a Fire Engine, Wrecking Pump, or Mining 
Pump, as it throws more water than any pump yet known, Tor its size, weight, and 
price. It was a four-inch Pump of this description that pumped out the ship Suawmut 
after she struck ou Mile Rock, on which occasion she sucked the water up 27.?;, feet per- 
pendicularly, pumping the grain through almost as freely as the water. There is ono 
of eight inches now being used to free the stranded coal ship Christopher Mitchell, in 
Bellingham Bay, and is pumping about 2000 gallons per minute. There is one of live 
inches iu use at the Ceotervillc Salt Works; it is giving gre:it .-attraction, and tbrowiug 
much more water than was expected. The San Francisco Pioneer Woollen Mills have a 
two-inch one (the smallest size) employed to free a shaft they arc sinking for water; 
>t is sucking 24 feet, forcing through 200 feet of hose, and has given them 60 ,000 gallons 
of water every ten hours. It is pumping sandy, muddy, ami gritty water, with appar- 
ently no ill effects. The quantity of water it throws for its size has astonished ail who 
ha v o seen it. 

The Patentee, Capt. C. H. Harrison, the old Bonieia nnd Mare Island Pilot, has at his 
Oil Store, 517 Front street, one of the largest size (twelve inches), which he keeps for 
wrecking purposes, and which is capable of throwing between four and live thousand 
gallons per minute. Of course these pumps are run by steam. Wc would call the at- 
tention of mining companies to them. 

^&- Mr. Thomas Powell, the well-known colliery proprieter of South 
Wales, died suddenly last week at his residence, the Gaer, Newport, 
Monmouthshire, in his 83d year. He was the owner of sixteen collieries, 
and had about 6,000 people in his employ. He was probably the 
largest coal exporter in the world. 



TEE SAN FKANCISCO NEWS LETTER, AND 



Ancient Copper Workings. 

The Late Superior firming Gazette states that the editor lately made 
a visit to the Portage Mines, for the purpose of examining an ancient 
copper pit which lias just been opened, and which, in some respects, 
is th* most remarkable of those relics of an unknown race ot miners 
having worked the copper lodes of the Lake Superior regions centuries 
before the New World was discovered by Columbus. The Gazette 
says: — "The ancient miners have worked down on the hanging wall 
side, about ten feet below the surface of the rock, where further pro- 
gress was prevented by an almost continuous floor of copper. The 
copper in this floor is exceedingly pure aud massive, and most singular 
of all, many of the lately-exposed laces boar evidence of having been 
cut with some small sharp instrument! These marks are distinctly 
visible in several places, the marks aud impressions being as clear and 
sharp as if made within the past year. This, we believe, is the first in- 
stance where it was apparent that any of the ancient miners had tools 
of suflicieuthardness to cut copper, even after being considerbly softened 
by the action of fire. It is quite evident that, as in almost every old 
pit which has been opened in the country, fire has been the agent usei 
to soften the metal before it was cut off, as the rocks bear evidence of 
calcination. Several stone hammers have also been taken out of the 
waste rock and earth, which has been piled up in the pit, and pieces 
of birch bark and burnt wood have been found intermixed. As yet 
the pit is only partly cleaned out, and we may expect to see other cu- 
riosities and peculiarities when the debris is all removed. Another in- 
teresting feature is the fact that the bottom of the trench is nearly one 
continuous bed of copper."

ing nature, not merely as that of a scientific investigator, but one upon the solution of 
which, to a very great cxleut, may rest the basis of religious faith. The Book is tho 
HUbstance of six. Lectures to Working Men, in which the author has endeavored to pre- 
sent the subject, cleared of the technicalities which make Darwin's work on the same 
Biibject a labor difficult and tiresome to most person.", not fully posted in scicntillc

^The Latest on Gunnery. 

The last news from Shoeburyness, England, is that no armor what- 
ever that a vessel can swim in is impervious to the guns thut can be 
brought to make holes in it. Our Warriors and Northumberlands, the 
whole strength of our embryo fleet, are just so much card-board in 
presence of Sir William Armstrong's missiles, only better prepared by 
their weight to go plump to the bottom. Already his 3'JO-pounders 
can send shot right through 7J-iuch plates of the most admirable qual- 
ity; and follow up the blow with shells that will destroy all they meet 
behind the armor as well as getting beyond it. And as it seems to 
be conjectured that our Continental rivals, fully aware of this excel- 
lent provision on our part for their reception, will build not ships, but 
creeping iron steam batteries coated to the depth of 12 inches to take 
advantage of calm weather, and drag their almost immersed bodies 
from arsenal to arsenal to destroy each without the chance of being 
dangerously bit in return, why be it known to them that if they let 
another month pass in peace, Sir William will be ready for them with 
a 600-pounder, before which 12-inch plates will crack like hazel-nuts, 
and though 12-inch plates are as heavy coats as anything can by pos- 
sibility float in, yet Sir William finds no such limit in the creation of 
artillery; thousand-pounders are the pretty little engines with which 
he hopes to salute them. All this is quite independent of Mr. Whit- 
worth's preparations for the same kind of reception. Unluckily his 
150-pounder had a slight crack in the inner tube, which prevented its 
being used more than once; but that once, it is boasted, showed that 
his little giants could bore iron as powerfully as Sir William's Titans; 
while a Mr. Thomas, with a cannon of 18 feet long, is quite satisfied 
with what he has done, we presume in the expectation of what it por- 
tends for the hereafter. There is but one mode of transcending 
such deeds, and that is to build some luu.OOO-pounder with its breech 
to Dover Clifts if they will resist the recoil, and, if France dares to 
provoke us, blow her out of the ocean altogether, and so bring affairs 
to a permanently peaceable termination. — Dispatch. 



$£T' The San Francisco telegraphic correspondent of the Sacramento 
Union says that a party of United States officers from Camp Lincoln

THE SAN FEANCISCO NEWS LETTEE. 



Together. 

Sweet band that, held in mine. 
Seems the one thing I cannot live without, 
The soul's one anchorage in this storm and doubt, 

Itake thee as tbesign. 

X have not much to say, 
Nor any words that fit such fond request : 
Let my blood speak to thine, and bear the rest 

Some silent heartward way. 

Of sweeter days in store 
For life, and more than life, when life is done, 
And thy soft pressure leads me gently on 

To Heaven's own Evermore. 

Thrice blest the faithful hand 
Which saves e'n while it blesses: hold me fast : 
Let me not go beneath the floods at last, 

So near the better land. 

Sweet hand, that, thus in mine, 
Seems the one thing I cannot live without, 
My heart's one anchor in life's storm and doubt, 

Take this, and make me thine. 



Gross Misconduct of the Federal Government in the Case of 
the Peterhoff. 



The Cabinet at Washington has just committed one of those acta 
which seem to surpass the recognized limits of human incapacity. Our readers will 
well remember the name of Captain Wilkes who seized the steamer Trent, and last 
Christmas twelvemonth was for some weeks the person most talked of both in England 
and the United States. He had before that event been known as an impulsive and 
unwise person who was unfit for much responsible command. On that occasion he 
reduced his own Government to the ignominious strait of compulsorily surrendering 
well known captives whose seizure had becu vaunted through a whole country, and had 
been well known through the civilized world. The Federal States have some of the 
characteristics of a great nation, but they are also wanting in some. They are es- 
pecially wanting in a scoso of shame: a great people should feel deeply the dishonor, 
of first boasting of the unresisted capture of two uon-combatants, and then of having 
to surrender them. They ought to look with suspicion on the person who involved 
them in such n transaction, and to be slow of rewarding him for what he did, or of 
employing him in the same service again. The Federal Government have taken the 
opposite course ; they have created Captain Wilkes an Admiral for the Trent exploit, 
and they have once more employed him in the same capacity. 

The result is that which might have been anticipated. Admiral Wilkes has acted 
in a new case worse than he did in the Trent case. There were in the latter some ir- 
ritating minutiae which might tend, if not to exculpate, at least to palliate his error. 
Messrs Mason and Slidell at the Havana had undeniably boasted of their errand, und, 
though a mistake in judgment, it was a natural impulse to interrupt that orrund. But 
in the present case there has been a more open breach of international law even than 
in the case of the Trent. 

It has been officially reported to "Lloyds" that on the 20th of February tho British 
steamer PeterhofT, from Falmouth, bound to Matamoras, a neutral port, aud carrying 
mails, was boarded by the Uuitcd States steamer Alabama oft St. Thomas, examined, 
«nd permitted to proceed on her voyage. She went into St. Thomas's, and "during 
her slay Captain Wilkes, of Trent notoriety, arrived in harbor with the United States 
steamers Massachusetts aud Oneida, and declared publicly that the Alabama should 
have made a prize of the I'cterhoflV' When she left St. Thomas ho repaired the omis- 
sion. Contrary, it is said, to the advice and wishes of his subordinates, he sent an 
armed Federal steamer, which violently seized possession of the Peterhoff, interrupted 
her voyage, made a prize of her, and carried her off to "Key West" iu the United States. 
As far "as the official report to Lloyds can be trusted, which on such a point is very 
likely to be well informed, the hostile act towards our vessel was solely due to Admiral 
Wilkes, and was disapproved of both by the Captain of the Alabama, who neglected to 
make a prize of the Petcrhoir, and also by the Captain of tho Vaudcrbilt, who, under 
orders, was obliged to make a prize of her. 

There ran scarcely be a doubt that the act was a gross breach of international law. 
The Pelerhotr was a neutral ship, trading from one neutral port to another. A long 
series of authorities, and especially American authorities, which have been ready to 
uphold the full rights of neutrals, have decided that such a ship so trading cannot be 
captured, whatsoever she may have on board. She is not herself an enemy; she is 
going, not to the enemy, but to a neutral country; even if she have goods on board 
whii'h may be useful to the enemy, and which may be sent from the neutral country 
to which she is bound forward to the enemy, it is immaterial. A shipowner cannot bo 
bound lo ascertain what will be done witli the good* he carries at the port to which he 
carries them: it would be absurd in htm to inquire, and ho could not know if he did 
inquire. In the present case, Mr. Crawford, a member for the City of London, and the 
owner of tho Peterhoff, has declared that she had not on board auy improper or con- 
traband goods, and, doubtless, the fact is so. But even if it had not been so, the act 
of Admiral Wilkes would have been justifiable ; it would be contrary to obvious maxima 
of good sense and lo recognized principles of international law. 



A Contrast to the Present Prince of Wales. 
"I immediately notified the arrival to the king and Prince of "Wales; 

the last came immediately. I, according to the* established etiquette, introduced (no 
one else being in the room) the Princess Caroline to hiin. She very properly, in cou- 
Bequenceof my saying to her it was the right mode of proceeding, attempted to kneel 
to him. He raised her (gracefully enough) and embraced her, said barely one word, 
turned round, retired to a distant part of ihc apartment, and calling me to him, said: 
'Harris, I am not well; pray, gel me a glass of brandy.' I said: -Sir, had you not 
better have a glass of water?' Upon which he, much out of humor, said with an oath: 
'No; I will go directly to the Queen;' and away he went. The princess, left during this 
short moment alone, was in a state of astonishment, and on my joining her, said: l Mon 
Dieu! est ce que le prince est toujourscommecela? Jo le troure Ires gros et nullemcnt 
aussi beau que son portrait.' I said bis royal highness was nnturaly a good deal af- 
fected aud Durried at this first interview, but she certainly would find him different at 
dinner. She was disposed to further criticisms on the occasion, which would have em- 
barrassed me very much to answer, if luckily the king had not ordered mo to attend 
bim." — lard Malmesbury. 

The Last "Words of Kosciusko. 

The second partition of Toland was followed by Kosciusko's insur- 
rection, the failure or whicii is familiar history, but with respect to which wo now learn 
that he denied the words attributed to him when he was wounded aud fainting — "Finis 
Potania/" "With my death on the field of battle or otherwise Poland could not and 
would not end. All the Poles have done since then in theglorious Polish legions, and all 
they will yet do in future to reccover their country, must be regarded as proofs that 
though we, the devoted soldiers of this country, are mortal, Poland is immortal." These, 
in place of li Finis Polynia.'" were the real words of Kosciusko when writing subse- 
quently his protest to the Count de Segnr. 



Special Brevities — Local and Select. 
J&~ Hume, the "medium," made another trial of bis skill lately at 

the Tuileries, whereat Prof. Maury was present. None but tho male portion of the 
Emperor's guests was present at the seance. His Majesty, who has been busily study- 
ing the question for some time past, had noted down several questions to propound to 
the mighty magician. In no case were the proofs of power successful, and the result 
of the sitting was unsatisfactory enough to give, for the moment, entire aain lie cause 
lo Maury, who professed lo have discovered the secret. The table rose — the candelabra 
Oew from one end of the room to the other — the ponderous Chinese Joss of solid brnuze , 
slid, as if it were skating upon the ice — aud yet the experiment upon it, in the lattur 
case, was conclusive enough of the immobility of the figure, and the deception prac- 
tised on the eyes alone. As soon as the displacing of the Joss was proposed by tho 
Emperor, Prof. Maury slid beneath it a page from his calpin which must of uecessity 
have moved, had the weighty bronze but stircd one line. After./ the monster had been 
seen to slide across the carpet and regain its place, Professor Maury drew the page 
from beneath it — unsullied, uncrusbed, exactly OS he hud inserted it but a moment 
before. And vat he declares that he himself was among those who beheld, and with 
the most amazement. Urn, the steady progress of the bronze towards the fireplace, and 
oveu now cannot get over the perplexity he experienced on beholding it turn around 
on reaching Hie fender, and slide back to its place behind the dour. Hume, they say, 
has no idea himself of the power by which he acts, and experiences quite as much per- 
plexity as vexation at beholding the new obstacle thrown by the erudition of Profes- 
sor Maury in the road to success he was treading so gallantly a little while ago. 

^20** Our first parents were certainly not our first human parents. — ■ 

Adam and Eve, or the first human pair, had parents before them, and those parents 
were Gorillas. The original mau and woman were modified "pithecoid" forms; infant 
prodigies of the ape kind. Unlike most other infant prodigies, they had the good fortune 
to transmit their superior organization to their posterity, and found a new family of su- 
perior heiugs. Were our first parents, then, Gorillas? Surely not. The first pair of 
Gorillas were also infant prodigies in comparison lo tho lower apes from which they 
sprang. And so we go down from lower ape to lower ape, tracing our descent through 
a pair of infant prodigies at every step. And what then ? We must puisne our pedi- 
gree through all the gradations of animal life; birds, reptiles, fishes, insects, worms, 
molluscs, and all other lorms of it,al least as many as, beginning with the "pithecoid," 
liebetweeu us and the first form. What is that? A star-fish, a jelly-fish, or one of 
the infusoria ? Or will our genealogy take hs through Ihe zoophytes lo the vegetable 
kingdom; and so down, down , down, derry down to the fuugi mosses, ultimately land- 
ing us m a filament of mould or lichen? Jtoea the flea constitute a portion of the trunk 
of tho family tree, or is it only the twig of a collateral branch? 

^5J~ One day lately Capt. Ward, master of one of the Liverpool tug- 
boats, took a party of ladies out on the river. The party having witnessed the races, 
and the illumination of her Majesty's ship the Majestic, Captain Ward steered bis steam- 
er for the landiug-stage at Woodsidc, in order to land them, and while he was busily 
engaged doing so, a cry was raised of "a lady overboard." Captain Ward, who is 
noted for the rescuing or persons from drowning, instantly jumped into the rtver, 
clothed as he was. His clothes encumbered him, aud be found himself in danger, when 
he called for a life-preserver. One was thrown to him, when he took it under his arm 
and caught the lady as she was sinking, and had her taken on board his vessel. The 
lady was in a swoon, and, t» bis utter astonishment, he recognized in her features 
those of his own daughter. The delight of the parent at being the means of saving 
his own child, and the thankfulness of the latter, can be better imagined than de- 
scribed. 

g®- Lord Elgin's great durbar at Agra on the 17th ult., is described 

as grandor than even Lord Canning's at the satue place. Crowds of chiefs from Raj- 
pooLina and Central India tilled the grand tent with numerous attendants. The place 
was a perfect blaze of jewels, such as no other spot in the world could display. Most 
remarkable of all there, though not so high aa the Maharajah Scindia of Gwalior, was 
a little woman, almost hiddeu in cloth of gold and an enormous headdress of the same 
costly fabric, the Begum of Boh pal, the most faithful of all our Mussulman feudatories 
in 1S57. She wore the insignia of the Slar of India, and purple silk gloves. 

3p3£~ Mr. Benjamin Crawsbaw, aged twenty-one. youngest brother of 
Messrs. Simon and Thomas Crawsbaw, railway contractors, expressed a desire to per- 
form tho operation of "tipping" some of the carriages. This request was granted, and 
he safely "lipped" three of the wagons over the embankment. On the fourth wagon 
coming up, Mr. Crawsbaw begaii to disengage the horse, when his foot slipped, aud bo 
fell with his bead across the tramway. The loaded wagon immediately passed over 
his head, and killed him. 

#&- Some one told the Bishop of Oxford the last "iciddle," as Lord 
Dundreary would call it. "What part of the service do young ladies look out for? The 
kirns (hymns)." "Ob," responded the learned and wilty prelate, "that's not appli- 
cable to my cathedral, it can only bo brought about in a chapel of Ae's (ease)." 

$$$- The Vienna papers slate that a great quantity of sparrows are 
about to b ■ sentoirio Australia, the Society of Acclimatation ofMelbouruehavinggivcu 
an order for a great number ol those birds, to destroy the caterpillars, which have 
increased in an extraordinary way iu that colony. 

£33" Encouraged by the great success which has attended the loan of 

£3.000,000, it is, we understand, intended by the Confederate Government shortly to 
issue proposals for a loaii of 20 millious sterling, also based upon the security of cotton, 
for delivery on the same terms as that just concluded. 

JS&- A young fellow who came up to London to see the rejoicings at 

the royal wedding, entered an eating-house in the Strand, and, on tho billof fare being 
handed lo him by the waiter, remarked, "that he didu't care about readio 1 now — he'd 
wait till after dinner." 

j££f~ A person at Toronto has constructed india-rubber mail-bags 

with the mouth compressed by screws, so that ihe bags are water-tight, and will float 
when full of letters and effectually preserve their contents. It is stated that they can 
be made at much less cost than the leather bags, and will stand more wear. 

g&- It is said that in San Salvador, which is at war with Guatemala, 

the people pay the war taxes monthly, and the soldiers are paid daily, aud there is no 
discussion in the Legislature, because all are of one mind. 

Jp£g- There is a gentleman in England who is unusually scrupulous 

with regard to having his door-plate polished every moruiug, being determined to leave 
an uutarnished name behind him when he goes lo town. 

_£&"• "Halloo, Fred, are you writing poetry ?" "Yes, I ? m writing an 

owed (ode) to my tailor." "What's the time and tune?" continued Tom. "Time, 
sixty nays," replied Fred; "It's set to notes of mine iu bis possession." 

^99" A fellow who has some "music in his soul," says that the most 
cheerful and soothing of all fireside melodies are the blended tones of a cricket, a tea- 
kettle, a loving wife, and the crowing of a baby. 

- J£&- A gentleman the other evening objected to playing cards with 

a lady, because, he said, she had such "winning ways" about her. 

p&- The harvest in South Australia this season is expected to yield 

60,01)0 tons more than is necessary for supplying the colony. 

fis$- The cost of a single shell fired from the Armstrong 100-pounder 

is about seventeen shillings. 

$£§- Chandler, Wade (Den) and Wilson report our Army in splendid 
fighting condition (under the circumstances remarkable). An army five 
times defeated must of necessity be enthused. — We don't doubt it.

The Great Basin Mining Company. 

The news lately received from the Tallnlah mine, Humboldt county, 
Nevada Territory, is producing considerable inquiry tor the stock of 
this Company. The Great Basin Company own two extensions on the 
Tallulah, and, as a ledge has been struck on the 6fth south extension, 
their value will unquestionably be very great.

Montgomery street, has been cancelled. 

^S~ Tbe sale of the wreck of the Jenny Ford, by Messrs. McRuer & 
Merrill, at auction, produced only $310. One week since she would 
have been cheap at $15,000.

THE SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER, AND 



FOR OTHERS' SAKE. 

Not one of all God's creatures but was lent 

To work some good upon this earth of ours; 
Each one, however poor and weak, was sent 

To strew a brother's rugged path with flowera. 
Dear child, thy hands are little, yet there lies 

Within the power that thou cau'st use for good; 
Those loving looks from thy blue childish eyee 

Are sacred links in earth's best brotherhood. 
So be thou always gentle; give thy band 

And guide in love some poor oue bowed in pain. 
And as thou walkest make him understand 

That all thy love requires not aught again. 
Then wait awhile, and mark in after days 

How one poor heart found peace where'er he trod; 
First learned to bless thee, and then to upraise 

For thee its voice in grateful praise to God. 
My brother, there is oue whom most of all 

Within thine heart thou lovest, she was gives 
To be thy guide, to keep thee lest thou fall, 

To be thy loving comfort— sent from Heaven. 
And with the thought of her within thee, do thou aim 

Above all sin and shame through life to soar, 
So will the soft, sweet music of her name 

Be as thy guiding light for evermore. 
For ever love, and always take her part, 

Be proud for her thy best resolves to make; 
For her be holy, and be pure in heart, 

Be wise, and great, and good, for her dear sake. 



The Greater the Truth, the Greater the LibeL 

For the truly great and good the Bhafts of satire can have no terrors, 
since it is only truth that can give those shafts an envenomed point. In 
order to be wounded, we must be vulnerable. Even the most reckless 
and unscrupulous satirist recoils instinctively before the calm strength 
that inheres in every noble and genuine character. He forbears the 
meditated blow trom a sense of its impotence, if from no higher motive; 
for he has an instinct for his appropriate prey no less unerring than 
that which guides the prowling wolf, or the hungry vulture. No moral 
or intellectual eminence is so great as to shield its possessor against 
coarse invective or vulgar abuse. But the finer edge of satire is blunted 
when it encounters the armor that mails every honest and loyal heart. 
Satire does not misrepresent men; it exhibits them as they really are, 
stripped of the poor disguises in which vanity and pretense are wont to 
wrap themselves when they would pass for what they are not. He who 
is intrinsically above satire need not dread it; the man who winces and 
writhes beneath the stroke, proves thereby that it has been justly aimed. 
Even the coarsest ridicule must have a foundation in truth, in order to 
be effective. The epigram which is wholly unjust is also pointless and 
inoffensive. There is a sense in which the legal maxim, "The greater 
the truth, the greater the libel," is literally true;— for nothing is so 
bitter and intolerable to the hypocrite and the charlatan as the naked 
truth. Lie about him, and he will smile in the security of conscious in- 
nocence. But the truth stings like the bastinado, and causes him to 
rave like a maniac. 

Progress of the Big Tree Route Across the Sierra Nevada. 

The Calaveras Chronicle of the 16th January, says: — The Big Tree 
road, the great thoroughfare from Stockton and Sacramento by the 
way of Murphy's, is completed to a point within a mile and a half of 
Silver Mountain, and as far as built is among the best mountain roads 
in California. It is 18 feet wide, and constructed in the most sub- 
stantial manner, with a grade over the summit that does not exceed 5 
feet to 100. The company intend to have it completed to the town of 
Silver Mountain by the middle of April. From Silver Mountain they 
intend to continue the road down Silver creek to the point where it 
unites with the East Fork of the Carson; thence down the East Fork, 
keeping on the east side of Carson valley until they reach Empire 
City, near Dayton, The location of the town on this great thoroughfare, 
and only 120 miles from Stockton and 90 miles from Murphy's, with the 
numerous towns and rich mining districts surrounding it, gives to the 
town of Silver Mountain a position that, within a short time, in wealth 
and population it will equal, If not surpass tHe far famed oity of Virginia. 

The Relative Cost of Armies. 

Franoe having a population of 37,500,000, and a total expenditure 
of 688,645,395 francs, has an effective army of 513,349 men. The 
United Kingdom, with a population of 29,193,319, contrives to disburse 
(unless this careful statistican be less reliable than usual) 677,429,375 
francs, having an army of only 300,823 men. Reasons for the great 
expenditure of this country, which would be suggested to us, we are 
not here forgetting. A calculation of Mons. Legoyt results in tabulat- 
ing the French expenditure per soldier as 1,341 francs, and the English 
as 2,231 francs, and the French military expenses as 33 per cent, of the 
total expenses, whilst the English was 39 per cent. The French 
appear from the same authority to have one soldier to every 73 inhabi- 
tants, whilst the English have one to 97. 

^* "Would any Gentleman oblige a Lady?"— Certainly not; he 
would endeavor to persuade her. 



Children — How to Treat Them. 

Children— real, live, plump, jolly, roily poly children— are as scarce 
as sensible grown-up people. Little, thin, narrow-shouldered, pale 
intellectualities, are common enough. It is your tomboy that is the 
rarity. What woman was ever less delicate in soul and pure in heart 
because she tore her frocks and climbed trees when she was a child 1 
Real, wild, childish romping, with ringing laughter and twinkling face, 
merry dances and family frolics— this is the stuff out of which whole- 
some manhood and womanhood is made. Children who are under con- 
viction of sin at five years of age die of brain disease, or live with 
hypochondria to torment the life out of all around them. Sad is the 
family that has one or more of such. I doubt not the mo! her of the 
Gracchi was a sad romp, and I more than suspect Portia of immense 
tomboyhood. Such healthy natures could not have developed other- 
wise. Pity and love the little children. Tolerate their pet. Comfort 
Nelly over her dead bird, and don't call Molly's little white "kitty" 
"a cat." It is enough to break a juvenile heart to have one r s darlings 
snubbed. How would you like to hear your own Frederick Augustus 
called "dirty young one?" Tbe little ones have their tragedies and 
their comedies, and laugh and weep more sincerely than yon do at 
Falstaff or Lear. They love, marry, keep house, have children, have 
weddings and funerals, and dig little graves for dead mice, and mourn 
into small white handkerchiefs, and get brother Jem to write appropri- 
ate inscriptions for its tiny headboard. Is this not human nature in 
little, and in its small way, as deserving of a certain respect? You 
do not despise your own reflections in a concave mirror you know. 
Cherish the children, mend the frocks; don't scold tbem for breaking 
toys— for man is not more inevitably mortal than playthings. Don't 
strip their fat shoulders in winter, nor roast them in flannels in dog- 
days, because somebody told you so. Don't drug Ihem; don't "yarb" 
them; don't stuff tbem with pastry, or starve them on chippy bread; 
don't send tbem to infant schools at three, or to fancy balls at ten. 

Australian Fauna. 

In the natural history of the whole class aves, there is nothing more 

remarkable than the mode of reproduction of the Megapvdes, to which the tallegalla,or, 
as the Australians call it, the bush turkey, belongs. Instead of hatching their eggs by 
the ordinary method of incubation in a nest, these birds construct a mound of leaves, 
grass, moss, or other materials capable of generating and retaining heat, in which tbe 
eggs are carefully buried, and watched by the parents until the young are matured, and 
msiiu forth from this novel hatching-machine stout, strong, and so fully feathered, as 
to be capable of tlight on the second or third day of their existcneel Tbe male birda 
construct the hatching-mound, which is generally situated on the slope of a bill, by 
throwing the leaves and gra s into a heap by means of their powerful feet, When it 
huB reached a height o( about fuur feet, all the bird* work together to reduce it to aflat 
surface, and then begin to excavate a depression in the centre: in this the eggs are de- 
posited, according us they arc laid, and covered up to a depth of about fifteen inches by 
the males, who also watch the temperature of the heap very carefully, almost uncov- 
ering the eggs during very hot weather, and always maintaining a circular opening in 
the centre of the mound, probably to iusure its thorough ventilation. Ou the young 
bird chipping out of the shell, it remains in tbe heap lor about twelve hours, without 
making any effort to escape from it, being at that time almost as deeply covered up by 
the male as the remaining eggs, uu the second day, it comes forth, with its wing fea- 
thers well developed, but enclosed in a sheath that soon bursts; nud early in the after- 
noon, returns to the mound again, where the assiduous father covers it up, but at a 
lessor depth than the circle of eggs from which it emerged in tbe morning. On the 
third day of its existence, the uursliug is capable of strong (light. These birds thrive 
remarkably well, and when supplied with a sufltcieticy of vegetable material, breed 
readily iu conQnemeut, and 1 may add, are excellent eating. I have seen uest-mouudB 
of the brush-turkey , iu the vicinity of the Mallee Scrub, nearlnglewood, thatcontained 
two or three large cart-louds of vegetable matter. 



"Oh, Fie!" 

A fashionable cotemporary, in speaking of the Empress of the French, 
appears to us to go a little too far. We know what those persons are 
called who show no respect for locks; — what shall we say about the 
writer of the following: — 

'■Her Majesty, who has been for some time inconvenienced by the widening of the 
parting of her hair, resolved on her return from Spain to have recourse to the only re- 
medy hitherto discovered, and has submitted' to having it removed entirely down the 
line wbicb was beginning to weaken." 

It is really too bad to permit such bold language to appear. Even 
supposing Her Majesty finds, as the song says, her 
"PartiDg iu such sweet sorrow," 

snrely it is not quite fair to the fair lady to reveal her grief in "that 
(h)air manner." Her Majesty's preux chevali.rs ought not to let this 
pass unnoticed, so we may expect a brush about this breach of comity. 

La Favorita Mine, Sonora, Mexico. 

We have the gratification to learn that the company owning this 
mine, under tbe able management of Mr. Superintendent Tbielehein, 
expect to receive per Sierra Nevada their first smelted metal, reduced 
at their own works near Moctezuma. Tbe metal smelted at Los Ras- 
tros. in the Libentad mine, a year and a half ago, under the adminis- 
tration of the same gentleman, assayed 989—1,000 fine; and La 
Favorita company therefore expect the brightest future, having the 
ledge 100 feet deep, from 1 to 2 feet wide, yield red oxides containing 
GO-95 per cent, copper and a mixture of silver. 

A Savage Old Story. 

A late English exchange says: '-The oddest report from the Yankees 
is that they intend to abolish the king and qneen in playing-cards, as 
they are not republican. The king is henceforth to be a colonel, and 
the queen is to be called liberty — that is, the Goddess of Liberty." 
The same paper adds: "We presume the knave will be restrained as a 
national character, as no objection has been raised to him."

The Magnolia Mine. 

[tftai tin- it ■ River RrmOh.\ 

As representing a cliuw UlhttftO nokoo «>l in derision by m;iny per- 
!»umh who satefteu tin* doUoo thai tt><- uopratendlng dlmeDMOU ol the 

"razor bind**" LodgOt WOUld MDdOI llirm iirnviinun-r.ilivr. aotwlth* 

itaadUu Ihelr ooooedod rlobaesB, »<• an Laduotd t«> preMDtaftsw 
figures in irnrd to the above Damod mine. Tho ledge spokeo ol la 

dii Austin Bill, and wafl located io June lust, itoCO which time it hus 

been almost eonataoUv worked. The oaalngs are solid and well de- 

linfd. and tin* ledge OOntloaOQS and CODtaloiog very rich ore. Tbo 
vein is of the aeVNge wldlfa Of ouu fuot — sunietiines widening to two 
feet, and OOdaalonaUT falliog off to not more than live or six iQCOea. 
Tlie on has bean tested iq it variety of ways, ut different limes and 
places, and the result has been to satisfy the owners of its wonderful 
richness. Dp to this time 2"\ tons of the ore hive been worked, with 

the following result: One ton worked at Gold Hill yielded $470; 

thirteen tons, at Hiidreth's mill. Austin. $2,800; two tone, by Thomp- 
son a Zattman, in arrastra, $816; ten tons, at Brady ft Co-'s mill, $600; 
and one and a half tons, at San Francisco. $'■>'> I — making a total of 
$.''.] 10, or an average yield .>t' >I*7 per tun. Small parcels of selected 
ore, worked by mill proeess at this place and San Francisco, yielded 
at the rale of $3,711 and $3,742 to the ton. The ore worked was all 
taken out at aud near the surface, and embraced the entire vein, and 
was considered a fair average of the whole surface rock. About 
seventy-live tons now lie at the mine ready to be taken to the mill 
when deemed advisable. When it is recollected that the Gould & 
Gurry, the richest mine yet developed in the Territory, averages but 
$.st> to the ton, and that at the present cost of working here it would 
run the stockholders in debt, we may be pardoned for assuming that 
in this region of high prices such a mine as the Magnolia, yielding an 
average ul S 1 s 7 , is far preferable. That the ore from the above mine 
will average much more than the latter amount when proper facilities 
fur working are supplied and mill men acquire experience in amalga- 
mating the ore of this section, the owners have no doubt. The Mag- 
nolia was incorporated here in August last, the stock remaining mostly 
in the bands of the original locators, resident here, who have perfect 
confidence in its value, and who are urging work forward with the 
single object of testing its merits fully. That they will be able ul- 
timately to establish the correctness of their judgment, and vindicate 
the "small" ledges lruin unjust derision, we have no particle of doubt. 
From the logic of successful working there can be no appeal. 

Desiccated Vegetables. 

Vegetables and meats deprived of moisture and submitted to severe 
pressure, will remain unchanged and preserve their natural taste for a 
long period in any climate. A very large business is now carried on 
in New Yurk in the way of desiccating vegetables for the army and 
navy, by the New York Desiccating Company — Theo. C. Shechill, 
Superintendent. About 15U persons are employed in the establish- 
ment: and the quantity of vegetables desiccated this year will amount 
to 56,000 baskets of tomatoes, 442 tons of string beans, 8,000 bushels 
of green peas, 15.000 barrels of turnips, 30.000 barrels of carrots, 
23,0110 heads of cabbage, 12.000 barrels of potatoes, 20,000 barrels of 
onions, 100 tons of parsley, and a moderate quantity of some other 
vegetables. The vegetables are, picked, cleaned, cut up and grated; 
they are then dried and deprived entirely of moisture, after which they 
are formed into flat cakes, under severe hydrostatic pressure. A cake 
weighing seven pound contains sufficient vegetables to make 42 gallons 
of goodsoup. They are excellent for sea voyages, and large quantities 
have been furnished on army contracts for soldiers in the field and 
invalids ia the national hospitals. 

Coso Mining Company. 

The Secretary of the Coso company, in this city, Mr. D. "W. Chambers, 
No. 11 Court Block, has dates from the Superintendent to January 20th. 
He says that at the depth of 58 feet, they struck a ledge two to three 
feet wide; that they have 30 tons of rock out, and that a shipment of 
bullion will be made to the city thiB present week. An assay of the 
average rock, from a small quantity sent to the Secretary, by Kellogg, 
Heuston & Co., shows $121 in silver. Some of the selected rock, it is 
estimated, shows $1,000 per ton. The company have an eight-stamp 
mill, and the present assessment of oae dollar per share, will clear 
them of debt. The mill cost 325,000, and is the completes! mill, in all 
its appointments, in the Owens' River country. 

£&* Mr. J. Manning, an ingenious optician, who exhibits his 
cunning work at 24 Regent street, has constructed an instrument by 
means of which the spirits which are now haunting the several theatres 
and singing-rooms may be heard to yet greater advantage. All sorts 
of writing on the wall and rapping under tables can be done by Mr. 
Manning's spirits, with an appearance of reality which might deceive 
the quickest eye and ear. A hand appears on the canvas; it writes a 
word and rubs it out again; but the spectator feels for it in vain, for 
neither the hand which writes nor the written words can be found by 
actual touch. Only the phantom can obliterate what the phantom has 
written. The experiment is very strange and startling, but real 
science, after all, must beat the conjurors. We undertake that Mr. 
Manning and his fellow-opticians will drive the Homes and Fosters 
quite out of the field. 

U&~ There are 6.116,175 horses in England. 1.200,000 are used for 
agricultural work, 600.000 for private use, and the rest are employed 
in public conveyances.

Our Letter From "Washoe. 

' VUJCISU Citt, Feb. 3,1864. 

I have been all the week at Gold Hill, watching the developementa 
making by the different companies claiming the ground laying south 
ol Belcher, and there is no doubt Out the best title is the North Amer- 
ican, and others have become so well convinced, that the owners in 
Baltic and Uncle Sam will buy in the North America. Every foot that 
could be bought, has been taken up here, and I should not be sur- 
prised if the stock went to S100 by the time this reaches you. The 
Overman have a prior location to the North American, and have a bet- 
ter title than any ot the other claims, but the company has been badly 
managed, and they may have done something to stop them from win- 
ning. I do not believe they have ; but with such a large body of ore 
in sight to contend for with many of those formerly owning in the 
Overman now owning in tbe Uncle Sam and Baltic, I do not know 
what extent ot swearing will be done. But even if the Overman 
loses as against the Uncle Sam, the North American will take the 
lead. I understand that a combination, or consolidation, of Overman 
and North American is about to be made ; if this is done, the only 
hope for those who own in the other claims to get even, is to buy Over- 
man or North American ; and as North American is lowest in the mar- 
ket, they will fc ot course prefer this stock to buy ; and I should not be 
surprised if North American went to $250 or $300 inside of ninety 
days. To give your readers a correct idea of the titles, I will say that 
the first location is Crown Point, next Belcher, next Overman, next 
North American. The Belcher and Overman claim the continuation 
of Crown Point. The North American locate at a point south of Over- 
man, claiming 3,200 north and 900 feet south. Uncle Sam and other 
companies are all subsequent locations by about a year, so cannot fig- 
ure in tbe contest, except as a losing concern. The Uncle Sam claim 
that tbe Overman worked on a lead below, claiming it as the one they 
located. Admit this to be so, the North American having the next 
claim, the Overman out of the way, gets this ground, as it is embraced 
in their 3,200 feet north. Now, Overman and North American com- 
bined, it makes the title complete. So well satisfied are the Uncle 
Sam "triumvirate" (Stow, Thompson & Corryell— par nooite/raternw/n) 
that they are at a loss at the very alarming aspect of affairs. Their 
nice little kettle of fish will surely burn. Now, as to the value of the 
ground in dispute : The ground is open 600 feet, and such a mass of 
wealth the world never saw before ; it is all wealth, and when settled 
will enrich all connected with it. I predict that all will be settled 
within the next three months upon the basis of the North American 
title. Every day's work shows the wisdom of those who located the 
claim. So well located and well preserved that there is homage paid 
to it. For the first time in two years, tbe company has a head. Mr. 
Henning, who has not been here over three weeks, has shown himself 
so superior as a manager, that be has been chosen President, and all is 
under his management. lie, with Mr. Arringlon as tbe head of the 
Overman, 1 am confident will use wisdom and some judgment ; and by 
the time I have this task to do again, the thing will be accomplished. 
On my way up. I stopped at the Savage and Gould & Curry, and was 
much pleased with what I saw coming out of the former mine. I did 
not have time to go in, but Mr. Hutcbings was just coming out, and 
said the mines never looked so well. The Gould & Curry are doing 
their usual business. I have made some notes of a conversation I had 
with Mr. Young, intending to put them on paper, but have not the 
time to go into detail — in a word, the stockholders need not have any 
more fears of there beiog any more duck ponds built. I predict for 
Mr. Young a brilliant future—he will have heavy work to complete, 
which has been commenced, but from this time out there will be "no 
more hams." Mr. Taylor, of the Best & Belcher, has just come in, and 
says that be is getting down finely, and by the end of tbe month will 
be down far enough to make a drift. There is a rumor in town that 
Sierra Nevada bad struck the lead, but cannot say of my own knowl- 
edge. At present prices I do not know of a better investment. Their 
Superintendent is as good a one as could be selected. The "Pony" 
time draws near, and I, per force, must close. 

TtfE Great Divorce Case. — Federals and Confederates. 



THE SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETfEK, AND 



Strathbogie and "Good Words." 

l)r. Norman McLeod, of Glasgow, one of the leading clergymen of 
the Established Church of Scotland, and one of Her Majesty's chap- 
lains for that part of the Kingdom, is, as most of our readers are 
aware, the editor of a popular magazine called Good Words. Those 
who know this admirable monthly hardly need to be told of its merits. 
ll combines the character of a religious with that of a secular journal. 
Unlike, however, nearly every denominational journal that we have 
seen or read, it is religious without being sectarian; it is earnest with- 
out being fanatical, its secular pages, in the departments of fiction, 
poetry, travels and popular science, are regularly filled with contribu- 
tions from the most eminent men of letters, and the most distinguished 
Bavana of the day. Lyell, Whewell, Herschel, Brewster, Lord Ard- 
millan, Murcbison, Playfair. Trollope and Kiugsley are numbered on 
its stalf, in their special departments. Drs. Guthrie, IVlcLeod and 
Cairns add the wealth of their learning as religious instructors in more 
serious but not less charming essays; and it would be impossible, per- 
haps, in the whole range of current journalism, weekly or monthly, 
to find any periodical so uniformly sustained by the foremost of con- 
temporary writers. That such a magazine should be popular with the 
great body of intelligent people, and that it should be so unpopular 
with sectarian bigots of every class and degree, is as natural as that 
cause and effect should be put in relation to each other. A week or 
two ago, a foolish parson (a Scotchman we regret to say) who does 
the piety and peddling for a Low Church journal published iu London, 
called The Record, assails Dr. McLeod's magazine in a series of in- 
dictments of the most formidable nature. It was latitudinarian; it 
published novels; it encouraged secular reading on the Sabbath by 
printing, side by side with an exposition of the parables, the latest 
astronomical discovery by Herschel; and, worse than all, its pictures 
were not favorable to virtue and true godliness. The objurgations of 
this critic have, naturally enough, found an echo iu the assemblies of 
the unco gude, from Land's End to John o' Greats. As a specimen of 
the way in which the testimony is lifted up against the dangerous 
teachings of Dr. McLeod and his brother editors, we cannot do better 
than refer our readers to a recent overture to the General Assembly 
from the Free Kirk Presbytery of far-famed Strathbogie. The other 
day a resolution was introduced into that reverend body by one of its 
members, named McGillivray, which reads as follows : 

"Wiiehiuas, it is mutter of notoriety that a periodical entitled Good W'orda is exten- 
sively circulated, and whereas, there is reason to believe that the circulation of this 
periodical is calculated to do injury, it is humbly overlurcd by the Tre^bytery of 
Strathbogie to the ensuing General Assembly to take the subject into consideration, 
and deal with it as they in their wi-aom shall deem it." 

Six of the ten members of the Presbytery present supported Mr. 
McGillivray, and the overture of course will duly turn up in the As- 
embly to feed the wrath of Dr. Candlish and his brother objurgators, 
whe believe that " Bible-loving Scotland" has been outraged by the 
inscription on a cairn of stones among the Highlands of Braemar. 
But turn we to the godly McGillivray. In supporting his overture he 
tells us that Dr. McLeod has admitted into Good Words a poem by 
Lord Ardmillan, entitled •' Rhoda and the Whistle," — a monstrous 
heresy, truly. Then, again, some one else has got in another poem 
entitled "Soul-gathering," with an engraving "representing a female 
lying prostrate on the ground upon a cross" — an engraving truly 
Popish, although we think in our old editions of Bunyan we have seen 
something not unlike it. Possibly the Rev. McGillivray would place 
his ban on the Pilgrim's Progress as well as Good Words, which would 
sorely grieve the Philosophic Tinker, were he alive in Strathbogie 
to-day. Yet, again, our Aberdeen-awa friend objects to an article on 
"Sisterhoods," but he doesn't tell us why; probably they are sug- 
gestive of nuns, and that's euougb. Then. Kiugsley writes on "The 
Monks and the Heathen," — a grim subject truly. But, worse than all, 
a clergyman named Thorold has appeared in Good Words with a 
paper called "Plain Thoughts on the Christian Sabbath," which Mr. 
McGillivray could not away with; and, iu short, with the exception of 
Dr. Guthrie, all the contributors are more or less tinged with Popery. 
This is a sad state of things, indeed; worse, far worse than the Balmoral 
cairn. That was badeuough; but a cairn in the Highlands is not likely 
to be seen every month as Good Words is. by over half a million of 
people. Let the overture of the worthy and precious Mr. McGillivray, 
therefore, go to the Assembly, and keep alive the flagging zeal of the 
Church in the great battle against Prelacy and the Pope, and— Com- 
mon Sense. 



^t®* A soldier, for deserting, was sentenced to have his ears cut off. 
After undergoing the ordeal, he was escorted out of the barrack-yard 
to the tune of the "Rogue's March." He then turned, and in mock 
dignity thus addressed the band: "Gentlemen, I thank you; but I have 
no ear for music."

[From the Aurora Times.} 

jS&r* The Iowa is a splendid claim, situated on Last Chance Hill, 
near the Utah ledge, which has attracted so much attention lately, was 
located in 1860. Like most other claims, considerable labor had to be 
done on it before its permanence and great richness were established 
beyond question. At the bottom of their incline shaft, about 125 feet 
from the surface, where a force of men are picking, blasting, and send- 
ing up the rock, night and day, the ledge is over ten feet wide, rich 
and well defined. Their quartz looks to be of wonderful richness, and 
all who have seen it anticipate a big yield when they get to crushing. 

^©~ Mining operations are going ahead with great energy in the Big 
Creek, Amador. Yankee Blade, and other districts. Stock in some of 
the companies already commands $200 a foot. Prospecting goes on 
steadily, discoveries daily being made, nearly all the mills running, 
and additional ones are in course of erection. New towns are building, 
aud Austin is daily increasing its fair proportions. 

^3?* The Golden Age and Empire, on Last Chance Hill, had 48 tone 
of rock crushed af the Wide West mill last week, which yielded 1,114 
ounces; assayed value, $5,058, from which it appears that the yield 
was over $100 per ton. It is quite evident that the Empire boys, by 
continuing such experiments, will soon be in funds. Such a mine only 
needs to be managed properly and it will enrich the owners. This, we 
doubt not, the Empire is fully competetent to do. 

$£3" The Green Erin is situated between the Del Monte and Garibaldi- 
On last Saturday they sent 18 tons of their rock to Winters' mill. 
Their shaft is now 70 feet deep, and the ledge is improving. This 
claim has but 800 feet. The yield of the crnsbing at Winters' mill we 
have not learned. In fact, they had to wait for other rock ahead of 
theirs, and probably it has not yet passed through the mill. 

$£$" Not much labor has been done on the Cary ledge, in Silver 
Hill District, but hands are now busily at work, and are going down 
rapidly. The company have one shaft some 30 feet deep, and the 
ledge is represented to be quite rich. 

7p£5r Several shares of the Cortez were sold on Tuesday for assess- 
ments. It brought, on an average, about seven dollars. The next 
day holders were asking $15 per share. 

^20* Work is proceeding fioely on the Rothschilds' tunnel, Last 
Chance Hill, aud with very cheering prospects of success. 

"Peacocks' Tails." 

Enrron of the Times:— I think it my duty, as a medical man, to warn 
the fair readers of the Times against a new fashion, which I observe is 
beginning to develope itself, and which cannot fail to be injurious in 
its effects. I have seen in the shop windows ladies' hats, etc., orna- 
mented at the part which overshadows the eyes, with plumes of various 
colored threads of spun glass, — in fact, the "peacocks' tails" which 
glass blowers are so fond of selling to young people. These plumes 
are highly ornamental and graceful to look at; bnt I would beg the 
gentlemen to warn the ladies of their families against wearing them, 
for these threads of glass are as thin as cobwebs, and, though ap- 
parently solid as a mass, break and snap off, falling into almost im- 
palpable powder with the greatest ease. Now, imagine the consequence; 
these spicidce are very likely to find their way into the eyes of the fair 
wearers; and I need not tell them what pain and discomfort they would 
necessarily cause. It would, moreover, be a difficult matter for the 
surgeon to see them, and when he had discovered them, it would be 
delicate work to remove them from the sensitive membranes which 
line the eyelids.

Luc if ci Matches. 

Ak a lecture recently delivered by Dr. Procter, of York, beftSM the 
York Institute, Um tooturer gmr« lha following useful Information 

*H»mt luolfbr maU'li***: ••MYs-rs. DIZOO, Newtnu ,t Mt-uth have ;i Btook 

of llmbor of the ralue genomLlj of from £8,000 to £10,000. They 
pr mIum yrarly 3^.60,000,000 mafechea. Reckoning the length of ncn 
neto-h tit *i\ laohesi Ihejr would exceed tin- circumference of the globe. 

It is esunuied thai I -.000 in I ;>.ouo jjrus.s to boxes of matches are pro- 
duced veeklv lo London alone. The yearly consumption of phos- 
phorus in this country for the manufacture of matches is estimated at 
six toDs, which, at '_*■*. 6d. per pound, representa £1,680. Our daily 
consumption of matches it considered to be 250,000,000, or more than 
•Ight matches R d.iy lor everv individual in the kingdom, lint the 
greet seal of mnton-maUng is Austria. For example, M. I'olluk. at 
V lenna, and If. Kiirth. in Bohemia, consume together about 20 tons of 
phosphorus annually, and employ about 5,000 persons. This quantity 
of phosphorus is sufficient to produce the amazing number ot -I I.niiij,- 
000.000 matches. The cost at which boxes and matches are made is 
equally startling. M. Purth soils his cheapest boxes at Id. per dozen, 
each box containing eighty matches. Ilarrop. a Prussian, sells his 
plain boxes at *2d. per 100. and 1,400 splints for \&,\ and De Majo, of 
Moravia, sells a case of fifty boxes, each containing 100 lucifers, for 
four pence. 

£&- The Boston Medical and Surgical Journal contains an account 
of a recent case of the poisoning of a lady on Third street, South Bos- 
ton, by green wall-paper. The case was attended by all the usual 
symptoms of poison. Dr. William E. Rice, who reports the case, says: 
"i \a examination, the walls of her room were found to be covered with 
paper rich in green coloring matter, which Iiuferred to be Scheele's 
green* On mixing it with lerrocyanide of potassium, and applying 
heat to it in a reduction tube, it yielded an arsenical mirror, and in an 
open tube small crystals with an adamantine lustre. "

O 



THE SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER, AND 



The Coin Contract Meeting. 

It is an unanimous opinion in this community that the Coin Contract 
Law should not be repealed. If there is any class who would not be 
injured by the irruption of a paper currency, it is the mechanic and 
working man. If California is thrown open to the circulation of one 
thousand millions of currency, and the effect is inflation of prices, en- 
hanced value to property, unhealthy improvement and competition in 
building, it is the mechanic and laborer who would reap the benefit of 
the Hush times, in constant employment and high prices. By some 
legerdemain, ot which we are ignorant, the class of mechanics and 
working men have been brought to believe that they are to be es- 
pecially injured by the repeal of a law enabling parties (between 
themselves) to contract in gold. By some appliances, of which we 
think we are not so ignorant, tbe press has fanned this flame to a pop- 
ular frenzy. The Morning Cull changes its base of operations between 
two days, and from being an active opponent of the measure becomes 
its violent partisan. The matter culminated at the mechanics' meeting 
on Thursday evening in the most disgraceful and cowardly attack upon 
a respectable gentleman that it has been our duty to chronicle for a 
long time. The meeting was called to order by a Supervisor who de- 
sires to be Street Superintendent; a set of resolutions were read by an 
Ex-Collector of the port of San FrancisGO, who has just been retired 
from an office where, in two years, he has cribbed $4o,Ot)0 iu gold; it 
it was addressed next by an Ex-Swamp Commissioner who, when the 
Slate Treasury was bankrupt, drew his monthly stipend in gold coin; 
it was next addressed by a gentleman-lawyer who is in the employ of 
the Pueblo for gold; and also by a gontleman-louoger who was the 
attorney for Bien, who carried gold out of tbe Mint on his heels — all 
very fit representatives of the Operative class. Tbe resolutions passed 
by acclamation; the Hon. Mr. Cheeseman, Sub-Treasurer of the United 
States, charged with the keeping of the Government treasure, alone 
voting "No." "Who is he? Hustle him out! Hang him!" cry the 
mob. Tbe Chairmau of the meeting asks him to declare himself, and 
he does so. He asks to speak, and the meeting assents. Mr. Cook is 
to repiy to him, when Mr. Britton, an irrascible little Englishman (we 
are sorry of this fact), jumps upon the stage and interrupts him before 
Mr. Cheesernan had said one word about greenbacks, and the crowd 
hustle hira out — close the meeting— follow Mr. Cheesernan into the 
street with jeers and insults— threaten his life and his person— follow 
him along the avenue like fiends, and he is finally saved from the cow- 
ardly hounds who pursue him by a friendly shelter and darkness. We 
apologise to the whole canine race for calling such auimals " hounds." 
The effect of this meeting is to imperil tbe cause it was called to aid. 
A good law, and one we desire to see preserved, is endangered by the 
acts of a cowardly mob. We say to our Legislators: This is not the 
act of tbe People of San Francisco. Our moneyed men are not re- 
sponsible for this indignity to a Federal Officer, and we should not 
suffer for the" indiscretion of a set of mad fools who, having once tasted 
blood, now scent it in every surf of popular commotion, and claim the 
right to hang everybody who may differ from them in opinion. 

Young Gentlemen and Young Blackguards. 

In San Francisco there are many young men deserving of every re- 
spect ; it is not of them we propose to speak. We do not allude to the 
"spring-chicken" class — those having a recently shaved look— for they 
are gentlemanly and harmless — nay, amusing ; but we do allude to a 
set of vulgar, rude young snobs woo congregate at tbe crossings ot 
Montgomery street of an afternoon, and by their dirty, spitting tillhy 
habits and general impertinence, are an offense to public decency. 
These destetible snobs are distinguished bj wearing exceedingly long- 
tailed coats, stove-pipe hats, and moustaches, dyed for the greater fe- 
rocity. When respectable ladies cross the street they stare, smirk, 
and grin, and make remarks ; and wheu any fast woman " comes 
along" they follow her like a string of cur dogs. Much allowance has 
to be made for their ignorance, and the unfortunate tact that they are 
enabled to live without having recourse to honest industry ; we there- 
fore do not desire to see any violence done to them (when we use the 
word violence, we mean their being '-shot down"), but we hope soon 
to hear these puppies have had their noses rubbed in their own dirt. 



The Era of Jacobin Lies. 



The historian who will write up the collapse of fanaticism, loyalty, 
flunkyisra and newspaper lies, will probably speak of this as ''The Era 
of Lies and Liars" (not excepting the Tel-lw-graph). Every day adds 
to their number. — Lies from every quarter where a Jacobin press or a 
suborned editor is at hand to publish them. The rank and file evidently 
opine that the days of paid liars are numbered— '-the scales are falling 
from their eyes." Tbe pitiful attempt at mendacity by the loyal press 
of San Francisco is apparent to everyone but tbe deluded Faithful; "the 
truth would be their annihilation — unblushing mendacity their only 
safeguard. The masses will at some future day assert their indepen- 
dence of the Jacobins and their organs {vide Dr. Toodil of the Mud Cart.) 



Fighting Joseph, 



" Fighting Joe," who at the last accounts was "fighting among the 
clouds" (vide Harper's Abolition Weekly), is likely to come to grief. — 
The friends and relatives of the 700 men who were slaughtered during 
Joe's last brilliant engagement have demanded an investigation. It is 
intimated that Joseph's Dashaway proclivities have had something to 
do with this sacrifice to bis vainglorious fame. It would not surprise 
us to hear that Fighting Joseph had resolved to return to the peaceful 
pursuits of agriculture or the Tehama House. Where is the sword?

Extremely Religious. 
#£S- The Bakers of San Francisco appeal to the Legislature to pass 
an act making it unlawful for them to pursue their avocation on Sundays. They state 
that, whereas tht-y now knead broad on that day, they really need it-st. They wish for 
a law prohibiting even their yeast from working. They are debarred from being par- 
takers of the bread Of life as administered by Starr King, because they have to servo 
bread to their customers. Cthern think it hard that their loaves should prevent them 
from loafing on Sunday and enjoying a little dougbmestic felicity. Even on that day 
they aru compelled to practise early rising, because their bread is rising. They urge 
that linkers are naturally a piV-house set of people, and therefore beg they may be 
compelled on Sunday to forsake ilieir pies fur their prayers. We trust their petition 
may bu granted ; a baker linds his profession a hard one, even when bread to it from bia 
youth ; and though he makes his bread light he by no means makes it easily. Let the 
baker have his holiday, and let no crusty customer grudge him an extra roll in bed ou 
Sunday morning, because he is thereby robbed of hL morning rolls. 

The Alexandria. 

By Tel-lie-graph we are informed that the Attorney General had 

been denied an appeal iu the case of the Alexandria — in other words, the attempt to 
stop her has failed. This subject is fraught with danger; it not only releases the Alex- 
andria, but the Kebel Km ns. Our safety depends on the action of Parliament. Should 
tbey enact a law to meet this case, there is no cause for alarm; but should the present 
Ministry be defeated in the attempt, our worst fears will be realized. The Derby Min- 
istry will come into power. With its known Ilcb-l sympathy, uot only Kama but Fleets 
wiU be titled out lu prey on our commerce, raise the Blockade, and devastate our New 
England coast. This action would undoubtedly he a causis belli with England, and as 
our relations with France are a little delicate just now, a war with one or more Powers 
would make no material difference. We trust that our Government is prepared for any 
emergency. 

Glorying in its Shame. 
An unfortnnate little newspaper called the Evening Journal, published 
in this city, devotes about six coluinns, daily, to exalting greenbacks above gold. It 
boasts that it is the only newspaper published iu this city in the Knglish language 
which is in favor of a paper currency in California. Well, as to being iu the KngUsb 
language, that may bo; hut it is precious bad Knglish. The poor little sheet is 
snuggling bard for a share ol Lincoln's oecrut-serviee fund and, determined to bo tirst 
in the held, has hoisted bis nuiUe for the next President at the head of its columns. 
The Mwniiuj Journal will assuredly die in tbe attempt to force (Jalilornians to prefer 
Mt. Chase's picture plaisters to Gold. It had much better stick to republishing Miss 
Ilraddou's uovols. 

Bacon. 

Tbe Romans were accustomed to perfume the air of their saloons 

with sweet essences. Wo must admit the fact of there being some seuse in that, but 
we protest vigorously against Mr. Maguire filling the atmosphere of his theatre with 
the perfumes of fried bacon. Next uoor to the theatre is a saloon with an eating 
department attached; every evening this fact is advertised to the olfactory organs 
of the audience in tbe Opera liuuse. The perfume is by no means "like tue sweet 
south that breathes upon a bed of violets stealing and giving odor," but decidedly 
that of a rasher of bacon. If Mr. Maguire allows this for the purpose of making people 
hungry enough to patronize bis saloon, we must say it is u most hoggish mode of 
advertising. 

Falling Oft 
The Local Items of the Bulletin is a good boy; he attended to what 

the News Lktteh told him so well that, with the help of a grammar and Webster's 
Dictionary, he has lately written very fan* .English — so passable that the News Lbttkr 
found very little to iiud fault with, lint Local Items must be careful and study bis 
book, or the News Letter must give him another scolding. He had very bad grammar 
iu the paper ou Wednesday. It is improper to say "the children sung a hymn:" it 
should be -sang." He a good boy, Local Items, aud mind your book, and in time you 
may be clever enough to write for the News Letter. 

A Sunday Spree. 

The Morning Squall announces the trial of Carlo Odiardo, "who 
killed one of his countrymen, during a Sunday spree." What inducements did the 
friends of the muiderer offer the virtuous HquaU to term waiting for a man iu the dark 
at the corner of an alley and cutting his throat u "Sunday spree/" 

What's in a Name? 
We trust that there is nothing ominous in the name of a certain 

isiand noted lor copper leads. Carmen is the Latin for song, and it is certainly true 
that stock iu many Carmen Island miuing companies is bciDg sold for a song. 

Incorrect 

The dead body of an infant was found some time ago wrapped up 
in a copy of a certain bit morning paper, which led an ignorant physician to state that 
the child was born with a caul 1 

Unstrung.

taviely says that "though he is in good health ho is physically unstrung." Wo cannot

The People's Guides. 



Truly we are a favored people ! Verily the lines have fallen to us 
in pleasant places! It we go to the d— 1 it is not the lault of Provi- 
dence, who has blessed us with such ample means of edification, and 
bas vouchsafed us such infallible guides as those great manufacturers 
of public opinion, the solemn Alia and the oracular BqvaU. If the as- 
sembled wisdom of the State, convened at Sacramento, shall chance to 
go astray on the Greenback question, the responsibility will not lie at 
the door ot '• an enlightened press." Yet the course of the "respecta- 
ble" journals alluded to, on the currency question, does seem rather 
paradoxical to an outsider. In fact, it's cnongh to puzzle that sharp 
fellow, Edipus, to whom tbo sphinx's riddle was as plain as the prin- 
ciples of syntax are to Fred MacCrellish's scriveners. The Alia, as is 
well known, represents the intelligence, the wealth, and the aristocracy 
of California. The Squall represents the "bone and sinew." The lordly 
auctioneers are the support ot the one ; the democratic masses are the 
main-stay of the other. The one travels upon its "cash," and its "re- 
finement ;" the other on its muscle. The one is the organ of capital ; 
the other of labor. The enigma that perplexes the philosophic intel- 
lect is, why should MacCrellish set bis hacks to work to obtain a re- 
peal of the currency law. Have Front street and Battery street de- 
manded it? Does capital desiderate an opportunity to pay labor in 
Greenbacks? And does capital imagine that it can win at that game? 
Verily great men are not always wise. Great is Front street ; great is 
Battery street ; great is MacCrellisb. But if the auctioneers obtain the 
privilege of paying their clerks, their book-keepers, and their dray- 
men.iu Greenbacks instead of gold, won't the clerks, book-beepers and 
draymen claim the privilege ot striking for higher wages? For our- 
selves, we believe devoutly in the doctrine of compensations. Things 
have somehow a tendency to regulate themselves — in the long run. 
There are certain ^conservative laws, which assert themselves poten- 
tially in all mundane affairs. According to Starr King there are "Laws 
of Disorder," — and even Starr King occasionally utters a truth — by 
accident. As to the currency question, a man with a glass eye can see 
through it. We venture to stake our reputation as a prophet (and it 
is as good as Brigbam Young's) that the Legislature won't repeal the 
existing law,— and it it does, our friend Low has confidentially tele- 
graphed us that he will veto it. Therefore we recommend the Squall 
and the Alia to "possess their souls in peace." 

The Great Meeting of the "Bone and Sinew." 

THE ANTI-KEPEAI, SENTIMENT. 

[From Our Own Special Heportcr.'] 
The great meeting at Piatt's Iiall, on Thursday evening, in opposi- 
tion to the repeal of the "Specific Contract Law," was a great success 
as to numbers, character, and enthusiastic opposition to the proposed 
legislative repeal. Strong resolutions were proposed, read, discussed, 
anil endorsed, against the threatened action of the Legislature. The 
meeting was addressed by several prominent gentlemen, merchants, 
lawyers and others, and the resolutions were carried, it may be said, 
unanimously, only one "No I" having been given. That "No!" was 
supposed to emanate from Mr. Cheeseman, Assistant Treasurer of the 
United States. A negative vote from such a source can scarcely be 
counted as having disturbed the unanimity in favor of the resolutions, 
although Mr. C. pertinaciously tried to disturb the unity of the meeting. 
This sweet-scented official was very anxious to make a point for him- 
self with Secretary Chase by an injudicious show of loyalty. We do 
not wish to be uncharitable, but cannot help thinking that with Mr. C. 
the interests of the people of this coast, and that of the Government at 
Washington, are very much inferior in his estimation to his own suc- 
cess. A Memorial to the Legislature, prepared for signatures, was 
read and endorsed unanimously. The meeting then adjourned, leaving 
the Ass-istant Treasurer sawing the air with his arms, and spoiling the 
atmosphere with wasted breath. 

p*3- Colmere, who was to have been hanged to-day for the murder 
of his wife, committed suicide yesterday by opening an artery of his 
a rm with the tooth of a comb, sharpened by rubbing it against the wall 
f his cell.

son was requested by Louis McLane to go to Ilalstoo, I'oiiohoe &. Co. 'a 
utter the forgery was known, and, il possible, Intel out the forger. 
Johnson bad tor some lime looked upon Shotwell us a fast man gen- 
erally, and had not proceeded in his search a great while before one 
of Kulstou's clerks told hiui thut the person who pass.-d the check at 
the bank would, if be hud whiskers, very closely resemble Mr. Angel. 
At once Johnson felt satisfied that Shotwell wus the forger. He had 
noticed that the latter some time belore had his whiskers, and then hia 
moustache, shaved off, and the remark of the clerk put him at once on 
the right track. Shotwell had, on the very day of the forgery, said to 
Johnson and others, that he had been selling mining stock, was flush, 
exhibited rolls of stock, ami felt so rich thut he invited all hands to 
drink wine and smoke cigars. Many other circumstances had trans- 
pired, which were evidences to the mind of Johnson, that Shotwell, 
who, with whiskers, so resembled Angel, and the forger, who, without 
them, still carried that resemblance to the eyo of tbo clerk who re- 
ceived the check, were one and the same man. Further inquiries 
showed that he, Shotwell, had deposited several thousand dollars the 
very day of the forgery, and that he had almost immediately started 
for Virginia City. 

Detective Johnson called Captain Douglass to his aid, and the latter 
started for Virginia City, with a well devised plan not only to arrest 
the culprit, but to secure the money. This plan was frustrated by Of- 
ficer Lees obtaining a warrant for the arrest of Shotwell, and telegraph- 
ing to Marshal Perry of Virginia to have Shotwell arrested. The in- 
formation upon which Chief Burke, Lees and Ellis acted was obtained 
from the Cashier of Kulston, Donohoe&Co., to whom it bad been given 
by Johnson. His fellow Detective, Captain Douglass, was already on 
his way to Virgiuia City to arrest Shotwell. Burke and his aids had 
no knowledge leading them to suspect Shotwell until it was obtained 
as above stated, long after the riddle bad been solved by Johnson. In 
proof of this, it may be stated that Chief Burke, when informed that 
Johnson had got out a warrant for the arrest of Shotwell, said, "Pshaw! 

he's on the wrong track; it is C who did it." Now all know the 

old saying, "There is honor among thieves;"— there certainly should 
be among thief detectors. But we can see the exhibition of none in 
this transaction, where advantage was taken of the brains, keen saga- 
city and accurate knowledge of Johnson, to cheat him of the credit so 
justly his due. And then for the Chief to rush into print and publish, 
for the admiration of the public, a false account of the affair, claiming 
all the honor of a very handsomely performed detective triumph, when 
he and his two heroes had nothing but the knowledge and acts ot De- 
tective Johnson to guide and direct them. We oppose all false preten- 
sions, whether in the Police or-the Pulpit. 

Greenbacks vs. Gold. 

Seth Wetherbee !— Everybody knows "Seth." Ho holds the fat posi- 
tion of Commissioner of Immigration. Seth is an original Repub. He 
voted for the "Woolly Horse;" stuck to the party, and voted for those 
brilliant statesmen, Lincoln and Stanford (the oleaginous). He is in- 
tensely loyal; is a member of that uoble band of patriots, the Leaguers; 
bates Copperheads, and loves office, money and niggers. By virtue of 
his office, Seth collects five dollars per bead for all foreign passengers, 
and three dollars (when one dollar is all the law compels a shipmaster 
to pay) for passenger reports— which is paid to Seth in coin. Now that 
Seth has collected some 811,000, which belongs to the State, he sud- 
denly evinces a loyal predilection for greenback circulation, and wishes 
to Ashleyize the State Treasury oui of the snug little sum of $3,600! 
Seth is iu favor of repealing the Specific Contract Luw, not for any in- 
dividual benefit that might accrue, but as a patriotic duty he owes the 
Government. Those who know Seth say that he knows a thing or two. 
We would advise ship-owners to pay the Passenger Tax in Mr. Chase's 
currency. 

The Niggers' Nomination. 

The Alia of this week says:— "We .are gratified to perceive that the 
loyal papers throughout the Stute are endorsing our nomination of Mr. 
Abraham Lincoln for the next Presidency." Now the darkies in Piatt's 
Hall, on New Year's Day, in company with Starr King, Miss Hardinge, 
and other white Miss Nancy niggers, having been the original nomi- 
nators of Mr. Lincoln, the above, from the Shoddy Blanket, informs us, 
for the first time, its editors likewise were in that piebald convocation. 

The Tallulah Mining Company. 

Letters received from the Superintendent of the Tallulah, on Thurs- 
day night last, place beyond all question the enormous value of the 
mine. The breadth of mineral has increased, and as they approach the 
water-level, the richness of the deposit constantly becomes greater.— 
Large quantities of the ore have already been taken out, and numerous 
bars may be expected in the course of a few weeks. 



Lincoln's Last Toast. — More friends and less need of them.

THE SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER. AND 



San Francisco Needs a Great Public Park! 

EVERYBODY ADMITS ITS IMPORTANCE, AND WOULD BE GLAD TO HAVE ONE 
ESTABLISHED. 

SAN FRANCISCO SHALL HATE A PARK containing an area of nt least Throe Hun- 
dred Acres, before the first day of January next, — unless the People are blind to 
their own interests and the magnificent future of the city. The undesigned has laid 
off a tract of land called '•University Mound Survey;" some two huudred and Ilfty odd 
lots, 100x120 feel, have already been sold to tho wealthiest class of our citizens, "and a 
tract of twenty-five acres has been conveyed to the Trustees of University College, for 
the purposes and uses of a University. 

The speedy construction of the College Building is no longer problematical. This 
alone will greatly enhance the value of the property. The high standing of those wbo 
have purchased furnishes a sure guarantee that the neighborhood will be all that is 
desirable, and that tho improvements they will make upon the property will be of such 
a character as to also add greatly to the value of the surrounding property. 

THE LOCATION* IS nESIRAHrj" AXD BEA I'TITl'l , A XT) IX THE EXACT LLVE OF THE CITY'S PROGRESS. 

The undersigned now proposes to lay off a tract of 300 acres of land for a PUBLIC 
Park. Also, to lay offa strip of land arouud the entire Park 150 feet in depth. 

Ho proposes to form a Corporation to be called the -'Central Park Association," with 
a capital stock of $000,000, divided into 600 lots, 100 by 120 feet on the University 
Mound Survey, for $500 each, and for each lot the purchaser may take, be shall in addi- 
tion in- entitled to ono full paid share of the Stock of the Park Corporation. As noon 
as 400 lots are taken and paid for, the strip of land surrounding the Park will be con- 
veyed to the Park Corporation for the benefit of the Members of the Association, and 
the 300 Acre Park will be conveyed to tho City and County of San Francisco for the 
uses and purposes of a Public Park — but to be improved and adorned according to the 
plans and under the supervision of the Central Park Association, the Mayor and Street 
Commissioner of City and County of San Francisco, to be ex-nfilcio Members of l he Board 
of Trustees of said Association. The undersigned does not flatter himself that all who 
may enter into this enterprise will do so solely for the purpose of establishing a park, 
hut he docs feel confident that every man wbo has the the least foresight or knowledge 
upon the subject of the growth ol cities, and the value of property adjoining public 
parks, will not hesitate a moment about investing money in the enterprise. The in- 
vestment of $500 in the lot alone will pay more than two per cent per month for ten 
years to come, while the strip of laud surrounding the Park having a frontage, as it 
will, for over three miles, will in a few years' time be worth an immense sum of money. 

The property surrounding Central Park, New York, has been sold for texsofjiiljjoxs 
. of dollars ! As an investment none safer or belter could be made. 

All classes can here find ample reasous for embarking in the enterprise. The man of 
amplo means can, besides receiving an ample equivalent for his money, enjoy the 
consciousness that he is doing much for the city iu which he liven. The man who has 
just Five Huudred Dollars can rest content, and assured that he has his money safely 
invested; that he has a lot for a homestead secured, and that the ever growing city and 
lines of railroad stretching thitherward, are rapidly enhancing its value, as it is the 
Value of his stock in the PARK ASSOCIATION*. 

While tho man who is ambitious, who lives that posterity may know him. may rest 
assured that his name shall be inscribed upon a monument in the centre of the Part in 
letters that shall bo as enduring as the marble upon which it shall be chiseled beneath 
the following: — "This Central Park was laid off and forever dedicated to the people of 
San Francisco by the united efforts of those whose names are inscribed upon tins Monu- 
ment in the year of our Lord eighteen hundred and sixty-three. Like them, do not 
forget do do something for posterity." Persons desirous of taking an interest in the 
enterprise will please call on the uudersigued, at his office, NO. ti05 Montgomery street.

THE SAN FKANCISCO NEWS LETTER, AND 



Letter from Reese River. 

Austin', January 27, 1864. 

Mr. Editor. — Since my last the weather has continued remarkably 
pleasant, with but one slight storm, in which three inches of snow only 
has fallen. To pay for these fine days we must next month have some 
heavy snow-storms, as winter never passed here without one or two 
heavy falls of snow. All seem pleased at the defeat of the Constitu- 
tion; it will keep the bauds of innumerable officeholders out of the peo- 
ple's pockets— at least for three or four years to come. Prospecting 
in this District tor new mines is about suspended. There are so many 
already found, and so much alike in chai acter and size of vein, that the 
owners have enough to do to test their value, which is being done in 
many cases as fast as the nature of the work will permit. There seems 
to be considerable confidence existing among many here that the mines 
about Austin can be made productive, though the small size of the 
veins forbid ttu more experienced to such conclusion. No doubt but 
some few will be found araoag the many locations in this and Amador 
Districts that will, the coming season, turn out valuable paying mines; 
to prove which, however, deep work must be done. From about all 
the Districts south of here, prospectors' reports are favorable. Indeed 
everything goes to show that in the southern Districts large and rich 
mines exist, but yet little known. I have made such arrangements 
with parties in those Districts that will enable me. in the course of the 
next two or three months, to give you a list of such valuable mines as 
really have large veins and good ores. I shall be particular to men- 
tion only those which will have a general good reputation in their sev- 
eral Districts. At the present time, Union District seems to have all 
the attraction. Austin and Clifton, as well as Big Creek, are drained 
of their inhabitants to a great extent, such is the rush to this favorite 
District. San Antooio District has also its admirers, and many fine 
large mines have already been discovered there. The ledges in this 
District are generally wide, with the ore well diffused through them. — 
All who have visited this new District agree that it will, in the course 
of one year, become an important mining locality. That silver bullion, 
will, before many months, flow from Reese River country to San Fran- 
cisco, in quantity far surpassing that of Washoe, no man who has trav- 
eled over these mountains towards the Colorado River pretends to 
doubt. Silver ores abound upou every hand, and that large and fabu- 
lously rich mines will shortly be developed, is as certain as anything 
in the future. 

England's Dies Irae. 

"We are sorry for Old England; we have a kindly feeling for her; but 
it's evident that Manifest Destiny is after her, and she is about played 
out. The day of her glory is over; her Di.s irae is at band; she totters 
on the perilous edge of doom. The Fenians are up in arms, and they 
mean mischief— that's what's the matter. The hour of the deliverance 
of down-trodden Ireland has struck. The Dutch Napoleon and the ter- 
rible Fenians understand each other; the Muscovite and the Yankee 
Czar wink approbation, and Old England's wooden walls can't save 
her. Alack and well a day, that it should come to this! A hundred 
thousand invincible Fenians are to land in Ireland, and fling to the 
breeze the Green Flag of Erin. A hundred and fifty thousand martial 
Gauls, tallow-devouring Russians and free-boru- Yankees — under the 
leadership of Big Ben Butler, MouraviefFand Thomas Francis Meagher — 
are to sail up the Thames, bombard the Tower, capture London, and 
plunder the Bank of England ! Such is a part of the well-digested pro- 
gramme. But, after all, our natural sorrow in the contemplation of 
these inevitable events is mitigated by the reflection of the great gain 
that will accrue to the cause of Progress and Humanity. French insti- 
tutions and Irish civilization will be substituted for the iron rule of 
little Vic. and the aristocratic constitution of Great Britain. Rotten 
boroughs will be abolished; the sovereign people, will assert their 
legitimate claims; the pure American system of primary elections, wire- 
pulling, lobbying and ballot-box stuffing will be inaugurated; the 
glorious reign of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity will commence; the 
Golden Age will be revived; the lion will lie down with the lamb, and 
the American Eagle roost upon the same perch with the Gallic Cock 
and the Double-Headed Condor of Muscovy! Shoddy will be King 
throughout that mighty Empire upon which the sun never sets. The 
purblind, mole-eyed wretch who cannot perceive how much civilization 
and the world will be the gainers by these momentous changes, may 
be safely written down "an ass." So mote it be! 

" Let the great world spiti forever, rtown Ihc ringing grooves of change !" 

Hurrah fur Progress ! Hurrah for GeneralJacksoa! Hurrah for the 
Fenian Brotherhood ! 

A Literary Man and King. 

One evening in December last two horsemen alighted at the best 
hotel in Calmar, in Gothland. The landlord, who was at first most at- 
tentive to his guests, could not conceal a slight grimace when one of 
them, the elder, wrote on the hotel register his name, "Charles, a liter- 
ary man." The travelers left next morning, but on the same day an 
orderl f officer brought the following note to the master of the hotel: — 
"Sir, I intended to stay a week at Calmar; but seeing you did not con- 
sider yourself greatly honored by lodging an author, I have returned 
to Stockholm." The letter was signed "Charles, a literary man, and 
King of Sweden." King Charles XV. is, in fact, an author, and has 
just published a new collection of poetry. 

A Caledonian Gem. — A Scotchman, upon being informed by one of 
his countrymen of the name of the inventor of the Geant balloon, said 
it was precisely his own case; because, if he were asked to go up in it, 
he should not hesitate to say "Nae-dare." 



Stock Remarks. 

The Market of the week cannot be charged with any deficiency in 
interest or business. All prominent stocks have received their full 
share of attention, and the aggregate amount of money circulated must 
be enormous. It cannot, however, be denied that the selling interest 
predominates, and that the uncertainty prevailing respecting the issue 
of the now notorious Repeal Bill checks the fuller development of a 
spirit such as our increasing resources would otherwise infallibly set 
in motion. 

Oram has remained firm but inactive at $1,500, or within five points, 
during the week. The prevailing opinion, adverse to any Dividends 
for the month, has proved correct; but reports are rife of recent 
encouraging prospects in this mine, in the interior of which intelligent 
works are being pushed in all directions. 

Gould & Curry must be quoted decidedly lower, and for one foot 
$1,450 has been accepted. Recent heavy expenses, it is presumed, 
still depress the Dividend, which for the past month was only $125. 

Savage has been much canvassed and several shares have passed 
at prices ranging from $3,250 to $3,350. The last price is $3,200 
offered. Late events point to a collision between this mine and the 
North Potosi— to the advantage, it may be apprehended, of tho local 
lawyers, and of none others. 

Chollar continues to touch on $380, but cannot be considered firm 
at that figure. 

Potosi is rising in favor, and there arc many who predict a glorious 
future for this mine. As offers increase, holders ascend and retire. 
As much as $1,250 is now bid tor this stock, and as much as $1,500 
asked. 

Hale & Norckoss ought to stand higher than its present nominal 
price of $S50. This is the only mine on the Comstock entirely free 
from litigation. 

Sierra Nevada is sold reluctantly at $85; but cannot be procured in 
any quantity at this price. 

Daney is on the rise, and may be quoted firm at $75. 

Burning Moscow is leisurely retreating before the Bears, and having 
been sold so low as $93 has partially rallied, and leaves off at from 
$103 to $105. 

North Potosi, having struck it rich {this time the strike is a reality), 
advanced rapidly during the week, and at its highest point reached 
$75. Since, it has fluctuated, and may now be safely placed at $70, b. 
30. There is no question about the rich vein discovered, and as little 
that reports about infrin ing on the Savage are not only incorrect but 
absurd. The new vein dips east, whereas Savage lies west of the point 
in question. There is a more reasonable doubt whether Savage has 
not for some time drawn up ore properly belonging to North Potosi. 

El Dorado is weaker at $51. 

We notice a sale of Imperial at $185, and that figure may be obtained; 
but there is little of this stock in the Market under $195. 

Antelope is quiet at previous rates. 

Real Del Monte has undergone many, but not very serious varia- 
tions. These have ranged from so low as $125 (at which figure oue 
Broker alone sold 300 leet), up to $105. Present price, $126— but this 
can only be stated approximately, as every Board, witnessesa change. 
The sales have been enormous. 

North American is rising, as we always predicted, and has reached 
the high figure of $110. 

Baltic remains firm at $160. 

Uncle Sam, for the most part held at $000, has changed hands to a 
small extent at $600, b. 30; and for a small parcel $550 was accepted. 

Overman is less in favor at $400 asked. 

Lady Bryan is active, but varies little in price: varying only from 
$63 to S66. 

Her consort, Desert, is in favor at $24. 

Justis is much iu request at or about $110, but has been sold at $130. 

Yellow Jacket can only by chance be picked up uuder $900, at 
which price there is a fair sale. 

Melones has reached $60, and sioce susbided through intermediate 
stages, to $45. 

Bullion, not much in request, is offered at $60 to $65. 

Baltimore American is a brisk sale and rising stock; at present 
about $42. 

Standard, $37; Lafayette, $16; Golden Swan, $30; Rock Island, 
$16; Burnside, $15 50; Pride op the West, $80; Wide West, $30; 
Buckeye, $13; Utah, $22; SavEit Hill, $15; Victor Hugo, $20; 
Seneca, $15, b. 30. 

The above represents actual sales, and the prices must be supposed 
cash, unless otherwise expressed. 

Legal Tender Notes, from causes easily understood, are a shy sale, 
with not mor.e than 66 cents offered. 



A Beauty to Draw Us with a Single Hair! — A Scotch Countess, 
whose riDglets we may say, without hesitation, are decidedly several

quired to bo kept up before the Rebellion), wa shall ouly bavo left the odd sixty 
million-, as a contribution tuwards the current expensed of the war. It will thus ho 
BSOQ that for the payment of thexo expenses, iiinety-ono cents out of every dollar re- 
quired will be rawed by loans, anil only nine cents by taxation. This is reversing the 
B Itlsb precedent with a vengeance I (Supposing Mr. Chase had followed in the foot- 
Steps of Hie Itnl ish lliianccrs, and h d levied heavy taxes upon the people, and had 
been more Bporlng in Ins emmlaslon of "greenbacks," it is much to be doubted 
whether the American citizen of to-day, would have to pay more for Ins barrel of 
11in.iv than be now docs, as we consider that tho duprecialiou of the currency is more 
than an equivalent for any tax that could be laid thereou. If the plan of increased 
taxation had been adopted, how different would have beeu the nation's baluucesheel 
at the end of the war, in comparison with lue appearance it is now likely to assume! 
It would certainly uot have been more than half the atnouut it will now figure up. 
Ii nii^bl have been only a quarter. 

I, 1 us now suppose tba war to be happily terminated, and the National Debt to bo 
$2,000,000,000. How would the country then Bland? That is the question which we 
will hero endeavor to Solve. U will have lo pay annually the expenses of the Ad- 
ministration. These iu the last year of Mr. Buchanan's adiuiuistruf ion were $30,000,- 
000. The siandiuy army and navy were then a inc.ro cipher. They will be so no longer. 
If the rebellion is suppressed large forcen will be required to keep the disaffected States 
in subjection. If the South slmuM gain its independence a large force will still be re- 
quired, as in Europe, whereby to purchase peace by being thoroughly prepared for 
war. In cither ease we canuot put down the annual amouut at less than $80,000,000 
more. Taking the interest of the National Itebt at an average of 5 per c^ut., $100,- 
000.000 wilt be aanually wanted to pay such interest. We have here already an 
annual requirement of $260,000,000, but as there is still another army to pay for*, the 
army of Tax Collectors, aud as the country will be subject to innumerable military 
pensions, it is not. safe to compute the annual burden which the nation will have lo 
bear at less tliau $300,000,000. Should the rebellion be aur pressed, and with the Con- 
federate Debt scattered lo the wiuus, tho debt of the United States will amount lo 
$6250 per bead, and the auuual taxation $938 per head for each of the thirty-two 
millions of inhabitants; but should the nation be divided, aud tho North comprise a 
population of twenty dour millions of inhabitants, the National Debt would be $8333, 
und the annual taxation $1*250 p-r head on such population. Iu Great Britain the 
National Debt is at the rate of $120 03 per head on the population. This is more than 
double ihe rate per head of the American debt for ihe entire population, but the 
British debt has been nearly two hundred years in accumulating, whilst the debt of 
the United Stales is barely three years oldl If however, we compare it with the 
American debt divided among the loyal Slates, we shall find that it is but one-third 
more per head thaii the latter. When we compare the taxation per head iu Britain 
With that which the people of the United Slates will have lo pay, the result is some- 
what startling. This is accounted for by the British Government being able to bor- 
row at a much cheaper rate than the Dulled States. The total expenses of the British 
Government for the year ending March last were $360,000,000 which is at the rale of 
$1148 per head. Now, with our estimated taxation of ihe United States, divided 
amongst its entire population, it will be only $210 less than that of Great Britain, but 
when it comes to be divided among the people of the loyal Slates alone, we llud that it 
will be actually $102 per head more than that paid by the people of the country 
which has heretofore been conmdered the niosi heavily taxed nation of the world 1 I I 
If we were to include in our calculations the taxes levied by Stales and Municipal tics 
which are iu themselves no trifle we should llud that the comparison with Britain is 
still greater against the United States. Let us now compare the abilities of the two 
couutries lor bearing their respective burdeus of debt aud taxation. The wealth of 
Great Britain is forty-five billions of dollars; that of the United States according lo 
tho census of 1860 is sixteen billions of dollars, iu which sum is included the value of 
four millions of slaves. Of this wealth live thousand millions arc credited to the 
Seceding States, and eleven thousand millions lo the loyal Stales. The British national 
debl is hut one-eleventh of her wealth. ThcNatioual Debt ol" the United Stales, taken 
at $2,000,000,000 will bo one-eight of the entire wealth, North aud South, or if we 
take merely the wealth of the loyal States, it will be between oue-iiflh and one-sixth 
of that wealth. Thus, iu the former case, the National Debt of the United States is, 
iu proportion lo its wealth, three-eighths greater than thai of Great Brtiain, whilst 
in the latter case it is exactly doubU ! Should this war coutmue on so that the debt 
should be iucreased beyond the amount at which we have placed it, it is difficult to 
conceive the lluancial disasters which must ensue. The debt may reach a point at 
which it might be found that salvation could not be had but by repudiation. Now,

Our Heroes. 

lh'ro-worsbip is n, universal propi-nsUy of the liuiimii blpfld, fmm 
■/fatal) oven the rooal philosophic mind Ii not wholly exempt. Uerolo 
aohtevemants kindle the ooloosl heart, and disturb the balance of the 

iim.-i sniiii inU'llect. Hut heroes imwuihns are bade ni enrlona itotT, 
and manufactured bv curlooa prooe&ses. The Right Rev. Mufti ol Cali- 
fornia botisu two promising bods, destined to perpetuate hla Illustrious 
race, and maintain In the next generation the traditional greatness of 

one of those lew Cis-Aihtntic families that rejoice in the possession of 
grandfathers. One of these, a tender and precocious youtb, widely 
known to lame as "The Spring Oik-ken." upholds the honor of fankee 
Doodledom on the barbarian shores ut Japan, and perpetrates nascent 
epistolary literature for the Jiulldin. The other, whose martial soul 
disdains the effeminate pursuits of the civilian, and pants for glory won 
on the tented held, wields a gory sword against the "foes of freedom 
aud his native land," beside the classic Rappahannock. As the Trojan 
hosts recoiled before the bWift-foored Achilles, when he sallied from his 
tent to revenge the fall of Patrocles, so (according to the BuUttin) da 
the rebel legions shrink back aghast and panic-stricken when the war- 
like "Larry'' leads his Yankees to the charge. Such are the strange 
vicissitudes of life— such the astounding metamorphosis of human char- 
acter—such the unlikely material out of which Time and Opportunity 
can manufacture heroes! Not more astounding was the transformation 
of Prince Hal. the graceless reprobate, and the giddy associate of 
Shakspeare's fat knight, into the valiant warrior who plucked the bud- 
ding laurels from Hotspur's brow, than that ol our hero from the young 

profligate whom Col. G 1 ouce kicked out of the Rosette for being 

found in the sleeping apartment of his daughter-in-law. into the Uaynrd 
ot the war. But alas for the small-souled jealousy of military men ! — 
There are envious spirits among us who essay to disparage the martial 
fame of our high-descended hero; who whisper abroad that he was bre- 
vetted for another's exploit, and that the letter-writers have bestowed 
on Sumner's Aide the praises that legitimately belonged to Franklin's; 
who aver (and profess they can prove) that "Larry" was never under 
fire during the day on which he is said to have won his laurels; that a 

gallant young Califbrnian, Major P , did in fact bear the orders of 

Sumner through that "terrible fire"' from which the letter-writers deem 
it so miraculous that our hero escaped unscathed. Let him who will 
lend a credulous ear to these injurious insinuations. For ourselves, 
we regard them as the wretched spawn of military jealousy: — 

" The mean world loves to darken what U bright, 
And see to dust each loftiest image brought." 

But when we consider the youthful promise of the slandered hero, the 
illustrious race from which he derives his lineage, the martial fame of 
his ancestry, and the great qualities of his distinguished paternal 
parent, we are ready to accept with undoubting faith the most glowing 
accounts of his prowess— even though found in the columns of the Bul- 
letin. If Justice has not abdicated her reign on earth, and if Judge 
Field has any influence at Washington, our hero will be one of the Dext 
batch of Major Generals. 

MouraviefFs Last Freak. 



The Europe records the following strange — and we should hope 
incredible— act on the part of General MouraviefF: — "In the early part 
of last week he went on horseback to the barracks of St. Ignace and 
Kazimierz, accompanied by a number of his subordinates, and, after 
inspecting those establishments, he set out on his return home. While 
passing through one of the streets, he heard a blackbird whistling the 
air of 'Poland is not lost!' To alight from his horse and enter the 
house was the work of an instance. The owner of the bird, a lad of 
fourteen, his father, and his mother, with a child at her breast, were 
brutally arrested, and the Military Governor of Lithuania with his 
own hand wrung the neck of the offending songster. The lather of the 
lad who had reared the bird was taken, with his family, into the market- 
place, where he received one hundred lashes from a knout, his wife fifty, 
and the lad thirty stripes from a rod. The father fainted and was 
carried off to the hospital, und the mother and her children were 
dragged to prison." 

p&~ The Germans of this city, who are deeply interested in the at- 
tempt to unite the whole great German people in one harmonious na- 
tionality, have formed a Society, having lor its object the furtherance 
of this idea, in a practical form: the raising of funds, and giving moral 
as well as material aid and comfort to the inhabitants of the disturbed 
principalities".

THE SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER, 



Squarza's Punch Factory. 

California has spoken freely and favorably of "Squarza's Punch," 
and now for the first time Squarza himself desires to pay his respects to 
his patrons and the public at large, and add a few words explanatory 
of the quality of the substances of which his punches are composed, 
and also of tbeir properties: — 

Substances: — Milk, Tea, Orauges, Lemons, Strawberries, Raspberries, Blackberries, 
Cherries, Pineapples, and other fruits; Rum, Jamaica, Coguac, Arac, Kirschwasser, 
Gin, Whiskey, ami Wine. From these substances, carefully and proportionally com- 
bined, I derive those several beverages that 1 have denominated Punche ?> 

Propkbties: — Tonic, nutritive, diaphoretic, diuretic, anti-bilious, totally free from 
those deleterious ellects produced upon the human system by the use of raw liquors. A 
few of the many results such use occasions may be here mentioned, such as "Torldy 
Blossoms," pimples, blotches ou the face, dyspepsia, olfensive breath, vitiated taste, 
morbid appetite, gout, physical and mental prostration. The use of Squarza's Punches 

will restore to their normal slate those organs deranged by the use of raw liquors 

They will impart strength and activity to the iutelleclual faculties, materially aid the 
digestive organs in the performances of their regular functions, and infuse into and 
throughout the whole system, instead of the morbidity, dullness aud torpor produced 
by indulgence in raw liquors, a feeling of gaiety and pleasurable excitement, never fol- 
lowed by cramp in the stomach, dizziuess or headache, eveu should the temptations of 
the table induce an infraction of the rules of temperance. Miners, mariners, and tra- 
velers by land aud sea , will endorse Squarza's Puuches as incomparable. They combine 
with their exquisite tlavoras beverages the properties which produce a speedy and effi- 
cient cure or seasickness, aud act as a valuable preventative of fever and dyseutary. 
Persous of sedentary habits or pursuits, or engaged in exhausting mental occupations, 
will (lud no equal to these punches in the whole range of beverages. They gradually 
warm the whole system to a comfortable condition, infuse a new spirit into its jaded 
faculties, without imparting the hcaliug excitements followed by prostration which are 
produced by the use of raw liquors. Families, parties, excursionists, and others, will 
acknowledge that Squarza's Punches are the moat grateful, the most luxurious, con- 
venient aud economical of libations.

THE SAN FEANCISCO NEWS LETTER. 



A LITE OF FLOWERS. 

See— on the cold damp flags, 

Whereover my lady Hits — 
A flower-girl, huddled up in her rags, 

Fallen asleep where she sits! 
Well may your ladyship stop, 

The sight has a wild weird charm — 
Look in the basket ready to drop 

Down from the li&tless arm. 
Violets— under the gas ! — 

Faded, flaccid, and dead, 
O'erblown roses waning, — alas! 

Lilies hanging the head; — 
Seeming meet types of her face. 

Haggard with hunger and care; 
Just the wrecks of girlhood and grace 

Drifting— who can tell where? 
Worn with the weary walking of hours, 

Penniless pitiful slave, 
See— she sleeps, unconscious of flowers, 

As if tbey grew over her grave ! 
There— in the cold and damp, 

There— in tbe drizzle and blast, 
What does she care for tbe flare of tbe lamp ? 

Is it not rest— come at last! 
If it were only so deep, 

Hunger disturbed not its dreams ! 
Over her there in her sleep, 

See, as the sickly light gleams, 
Hollow and pallid her cbeek — 

Hers, who lies starkly below: 
But round, rosy-tinted, and sleek, 

Hers — gazing down on her now ! 
Near;— yet how far apart! 

View them, oh, pitying Powers, — 
Each with her tender woman's heart — 

Each with her life of flowers. 
Flowers—strewn in one's happy path, 

Garlands for waist and for head: — 
Tell me what to tbe other. I pray ! 

Things not for beauty but bread ! 
Flowers, tbat tbe poet have sung, 

Flowers, that tbe west wind bas wooed, 
Flowers tbat the bees have been busy among, 

Hummed round, and hymned-to, and sued,— 
Flowers— e'en those commonest sweets 

Nature to earth does entrust ! 
Yet — to this bapless waif of tbe streets, 

Meaning simply — a crust! 
Well, you may snatch back your dress, 

Lady, lest contact defile, 
Yet may the heavens your loveliness bless, 

Just for that womanly smile: 
Sorrowful ! Go— get you in, 

Sit down and sigh for despair: 
What can we do tor a world full of sin, 

Suffering, sorrow, and care! 
Under tbe flaring lamp, 

Out in tbe midnight street, 
Where the air is stilly, chilly, and damp, 

Look at the two, bow tbey meet! 
How many meet so — and part — 

Here in this world of ours, 
Each with her tender woman's heart, 

Each with her life of flowers ! 



T. H. 



Alas, Poor Poland ! 



[From the Sun Francisco Democratic Press.] 

We dropped in at the ball, on the corner of Bush and Montgomery 
streets hist evening, where tbe meeting was held, and found only about 
a dozen or so of persons. Why, eight months ago in this city, Piatt's 
immense hall was crowded from pit to dome»witb meu who howled 
themselves hoarse over Poland s wrongs. We remember how we tried 
to force our way into tbe building, that we might join our huzza with 
tbe crowd, and we could not get within gunshot of tbe stage. Now 
when a call is made for tbe friends of Poland to assemble, a dozen men 
respond. Let tbe tiger, Mouvarieff, still revel in the blood of tbe sons 
and daughters of Poland; let Siberia still send forth its despairing 
groans — America has no sympathy for aught but Russia. 

"Quaff the red wine! Midst racing war. 

We must not from such contract .-brink; 
Let carnage drive the bloody car, 

And freemen with tbe Cossack drink ! 
Who whisper's, 'Poland?' Strike them downl 

lier bleeding sons and all such theme?; 
Her dying throes, her old renown, 

Are contraband — are madmen's dreams!" 



^5- A wrcatb was exhibited at a fair in Gloucester, a few days ago, 
tbat is composed of tbe balr of 100 different residents of the town,'noue 
of whom is under 70 years of age, while ten of them are over 90, and 
one is a centenarian. The lady who made it is 59 years old, and baB 
been four years about it. 



Special Brevities — Local and Select 
$83" On arriving in London, after the fight. Heenan was conveyed 

in as private a manner as circumstance* would admit, to a house in a quiet street in 
the neighborhood or the Haymarkel, whore ho immediately reeem-d the best medical 
assistance. Although the limits and contusions under which he guttered were iiumwr- 

ous ami severe, arrtaing from blows and lulls, no hones wire Fractured, nor had ho 

Sustained any internal injury. His head exhibits a ghastly appearance, the old wound 
on the lib, inflicted during his tight with layers, having been ro-opeoed, and bis eyes 
greatly swollen and nearly closed. The sums of inoucy invested in bets on this event 
are Said to have been unsurpassed on any previous occasion, one member of the 
■'prise ring" alone haviug held commissions to tbe amount of upwards of £7,000 to 
lay out on Heenan, and as the odds were so much agaiust tbe victor tbe disappoint- 
ment is so great. 

$&- The most exciting domestic item in the British news is the 

new*paper-duel between Mr. t'obdeu and Mr, John J. Pelane, the chief editor of the 
London Times. Mr. Obden commenced by charging the rimes (in a letter which the 
Times refused to publish) with misrepresenting Mr. Bright by an insinuation that ho 
(Blight) desired to see the lands of the rich divided among the poor. Mr. CouuoU also 
diverged In the letter in question into an attack upon the chief editor, charging hi in 
indirectly with venality, corruption, and many heinous offences. This letter was given 
to tbe Daily News for publication, and Mr, Delnne wan obliged to reply. Mr. Delano 
has decidedly the best of the argument, as he manifests also by far the best temper. 

_^?- A Franco-Prussian, instead of a Franco-Unssian alliance is now 

gravely hinted at. The London Tina cuutinues day by day to show up the absurdity, 
as well as the dangers likely to grow out of a Congress. The difficulty between Ger- 
many and Denmark in regard to the Holsleiu question is likely to be adjusted by the 
honest and common-sense view taken of it by Austria and Prussia, both of which 
powers recognize the new Dauish King's title to the Herman duchies under the compact 
of 1852, by which the Dauish succession was settled. 

^J* The sale of Her Majesty's Scotch oxen, fed in the meadows of 

Windsor Great Park, under the management of Mr. G. Gravatt, on bean meal, cake, 
and hay, took place at Windsor. The beasts were in tbe Quest condition, 25 of them, 
rising six years old, averaged over £27 oach — a price much higher than has ever before 
been realized. Altogether there wore 53. The highest-priced ox sold for £30 10s. It 
was bought by Mr. Copeland, the Royal butcher. Several produced prices between 
£29 and £30. 

^3@"* Said an Irishman to a telegraph operator: "Do you ever charge 

anybody for the address in a message?" "No,'' replied the operator. "And do ye 
charge for signing his name, sir?" said the custom-r. "No. sir." "Well, ihin, will 
ye please -end this; I jisl want mo brother to know I'm hero" — bearing the following : 
"To John McFlinn — ut Xew York— (sigucd)— Patrick Mcl'liun." The message was 
sent as a tribute to Put's shrewdness. 

fi£S~ The well-known Tom Raikes, who was a tall, large man, very 

much marked with the small-pox, having one day written an anonymous letter to 
H'Ur.sy, containing some piece of impertinence or other, had closed it with a wafer, 
and stamped it with something resembling the top of a thimble. The Count soon dis- 
covered who was the writer, and iuaroom full of company thus addressed him: — "Ha, 
ha, my good Raikes, the next time you write an anonymous letter you must not seal it 
with your nose.'-' 

$&- The Knickerbocker thus hinges the accident of greatness on a 
"had" or two: — "Had Agamemnon kicked Ajax io the trowsers instead of challenging 
bim to mortal combat with a clever, Homer would have been as little known an the 
boss mason who spread the trowel of mortar for tbe Pyramids. Had not the Eleventh 
Army Corps broko at Chaucellorsville, Joe Hooker would have been hailed as the 
second Washington.'' 

$&5~ A very observant poet thus apostrophises the great order of 

cetacea: — 

"Hoi whales that sail the deep, 
Repine not at your fate; 
Your flesh illuminates tbe world, 
Your hones make woman great." 

$03* A little boy, five years of age, who lived with bis uncle, Mr. 

"Williamson, a farmer at Small, Islay, was attacked by a bull belonging to tbe farm, 
while standing near his uncle's bouse. The bull tossed the hoy on his horns, and 
before be was rescued bis abdumeu was ripped opeD. The poor little fellow only lived 
a few hours. 

#33- A lady waB once declaring tbat she could not tinderstand how 

gentleman could smoke. "It certainly shortens their lives," said she. "I dou'l know 
that," exclaimed a gentleman; "there's ray father who smokes every blessed day, 
and he is now 70 years old." "Well," was the reply, "if he had never smoked, ho 
might have been SO by this time." 

_^^M. Stefan has communicated to the Vienna Academy some 

mathematical researches on tbe propagation of heat, and considers that the results he 
bas obtained justify the proposition "that heat propagates itself by radiation with the 
rapidity of light, by transmission with the rapidity of sound." 

$53" The absence of specie is giving a new cause of uneasiness. 

When young Speedy the othor day heard bis father threaten that he would cut him off 
with a shilling, he looked iu his face and coolly askgd him where be would gel the 
specie. 

■#3S~ The Abbe Malot, expressing a doubt to Cardinal Richelieu as 

to how many masses would save the soul, the Cardinal replied, "Phol you are a block - 
head! As many as it would take snow-balls to heat an oven." Richelieu Was rather 

plain-spoken. 

$g$~ A married lady found her two sons quarreling, and in hopes of 
pulling an end to their differences uttered the following: "You young rascals, if you 
dou't desist directly, I'll tell both your fathers." 

£&■ A lady wrote from Paris to say that the heat during the past 
week has been so intense tbat it is impossible to keep a secret for more than half an 
hour. 

%3f If we all had windows to our breasts to-morrow, what a demand 

there would be Tor blinds! 

$&$-■ A Dutchman's heartrending soliloquy is described thus: — "She 

lofes Shou Mickle so petter as I. because be has cot a coople lobars more as 1 has." 
$®- Tomkins says a "widder is a married woman what's got no 

husbaDd, kos he's dead, and a widower is a feilor as runs after the widders." 

#&~ Well-behaved boys may be called younkersj but rude and 

vulgar ones are nothing but young curs. 

%3f The losses of the Federal armies during the year, in killed, 

missing aild wounded, were 92,770 men. 

1fi&~ In the Times a man called Bird advertises that henceforth he 

means to use tbe name of Btird. 

Jp3¥- The husband who devoured his wife with kisses, found after- 
wards that she disagreed with him. 

^S~ "There's something touching in that," as the unprofessional 

visitor to the battle-Held said wheu the cannon-ball grazed his nose.

Opening of the New Banking House of Donohoe & Kelly. 

The new Banking House of Donohoe & Kelly, on the southeast cor- 
ner of Sacramento and Montgomery streets, was "opened" yesterday 
in the right royal style. The throng of passers-by pause to gaze on 
the immense piles of glittering golden coin that heap the trays, and 
make the windows resplendent. Some, we fear, gaze with other feel- 
ings than those of admiration and wonder upon this tempting display. 
Mr. Donohoe received the congratulations and good wishes of innumer- 
able friends. Thus a great enterprise has been elegantly and aus- 
piciously inaugurated. May the results to all parties concerned be 
as "golden" as the omens under which its career commences. 

Notice to Orm Subscribers. — Our Magnificently Illustrated Supple- 
ment will be ready for delivery on the morning of the Glorious Fourth,

Steamship Golden Age. 

We are informed that the P. M. Co.'s steamship Golden Age was in- 
debted to the kindness of the Admiral of the French fleet at Acapulco, for his timely 
assistant' in furnishing a hawser for the purpose of towing her in safety to San Fran- 
cisco. Wo failed to see any acknowledgment of the fact in tlio daily papers. This ia 
but one of the many benefits to bo derived from the French occupation of Mexico. The 
French have possession of Acapulco, having surprised and captured the Mexican troops, 
with their arms, etc. Military occupation of the port of Acapulco will be retained by 
the French, leaving the civil departments in the hands of the Nationalists. The port 
will bo immediately opened to the commerce of the world, doing away with the onerous 
restrictions of the exploded Republic. So mote it bo. Vessels are required to clear at 
the French Consulate.

SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER,* AND 



[July 2, 1864. 



BE JUST AND FEAR NOT. 

Speak the truth. Let others fence, 

And trim the'ir words fur pay; 
In pleasant sunshine of pretence 

Let others bask their day. 
Guard thou the fact; though clouda of night 

Down on thy watch-tower stoop; 
Though thou shouldsl sec thine heart's delight 

Borne from thee by their swoop. 
Face thou the wind. Though safer seem 

In shelter to abide, 
We were not made to sit and dream; 

The safe must first be tried. 
Where Gy>d hath set His thorns about. 

Cry not "The way is plain;" 
His path within for those without 

Is paved with toil and pain. 
One fragment of His blessed Word, 

Into thy Bpirit burned, 
Is better than the whole, half heard, 

And by thine interest turned. 
Show thou thy light. If conscience gleam. 

Set not the bushel down ; 
The smallest spark may send his beam 

O'er hamlet, tower, and town. 
Woe, woe to him, on safety bent, 

Who creeps to age from youth, 
Failing to grasp bis life's intent 

Because he fears the truth 1 
Be true to every inmost thought, 

And, as thy thought, thy speech; 
What thou hast not by suQeriug bought 

Presume thou not to teach. 
Hold on , hold on — thou hast the rock ; 

The foes are on the sand; 
The first world-tempest's ruthless shock 

Scatters their shifting strand! 
While each wild gust the mist shall clear 

We now see darkly through, 
And justified at last appear 

The true, in him that's True. 

Monarchy vs. Republicanism. 

We have received a curious communication from some original genius, 
who has become disgusted with Republican institutions, and thiuks the 
best thing to be done in the present crisis is to adopt a monarchical 
form of government. Our correspondent says: — 

•'The present state of affairs leads me to look to the future. I often hear persons 
speak of the prospect of Repudiation, and of others saying that the present National 
Debt is owing to American citizens, and is therefore allin the country. These latter 
seem to think that it is in the power of the Government to make any amount of money. 
And so it is, ir paper promises to pay are mouoy— for a $10 bill costs no more to make 
than a $1 bill. We now see that the value of the paper dollar in Now York is only 50 
ceuti. How is this ? does it not show some want of confidence in the Government or 
rather in the people, of the United States? Are our capitalists fearful of Repudiation ? 
Whence does this fear come? From the democracy, who never admire the payment 
or taxes, and who are always governed by designing demagogues. These demagogues, 
to ingratiate themselves with an unthinking multitude, will promise reduction ot taxes 
and the cheapening of imports. The ignorant care not how this is accomplished- pres- 
ent reher is what they look to; the morrow they leave to take care or itself Already 
we see the beginning, in that the Legislature of the great State of New York have 
passed a resolution to pay the interest on their Bonded Debt in greenbacks which is 
virtually paying only half the agreed interest, and robbing the bondholder's of hair 
their capital— for it is evident, ir a perpetual annuity or $5 is worth $100 then an an- 
nuity of $2 60 (or $5 in greenbacks) is only worth $50. The present National Debt is 
now probably three thousand millions of dollars, and it is not unlikely that before the 
end or the war it will bo four thousand millions. Now, I do not see how the people 
are going to pay the iutcrest of this debt in gold, two hundred and forty millions per 
annum, and at the same time provide for the civil and military support of the Govern- 
ment, at least one hundred millions more. K this question is left to the people aba 
great majority or whom do not hold U. S. stock), led by their demagogical leaders I 
think there is some risk of repudiation. Now, if repudiation should take placo where 
will the capital come from to continue and to extend tbo improvements required iu 
the country. People will have no money to lend till they have accumulated it by their 
industry, which will take a long time; and it is not likely that foreigners will commit 
their savings to the care of people so reckless and unprincipled. I believe, under our 
present difficulties, the best thing for the country would be the establishment of a 
Monarchy. I do not care whether that is the name or Republic • only in the latter 
case we should restrict the prerogative of the President, and elect the chief officers of 
the Government for life. The elective franchise should be restricted, sny to about 10 
per cent or the male adult population. We should then have true liberty security 
and respectability as a nation." ' '

The London Financial Association invite subscriptions for tho capital stock of the 
British and Californian Banking Company. This bank is established to supply those 
facilities which the great and increasing trade of California imperatively requires. It 
is remarkable that while British capital has been socking investment iu joint stock 
banking operations in every part of the world, California has been hitherto overlooked. 
This omission has excited no little surprise ou the part of tbe merchants and traders 
of that Stale, and the establishmeut of th a bank will be eagerly hailed by them. 
The following facts show how iarge a field of operations will be open to this institution. 
The yield or the gold lields is above £6,000,000 per annum, and is steadily increasing. 
Silver mines, discovered about four years ago in the new territory of Nevada, are 
now producing £200,000 sterling per month. Great progress has been made in agricul- 
ture, and instead or importing graiu, as the gold colonies of Australia do, California 
exports largely. The populaliou of the State exceeds 500,000, exclusive of the Chinese 
and Indians, and is on the increase. The Great Pacific Railway for uuiting the Atlantic 
and Pacille Coasts is now under construction, When completed it will take only six 
days to convey passengers and goods from New York to San Francisco, and the latter 
place will then become an important depot for the trade to China, Jaiian, and other 
parts of the East. For the purpose of communication, California is already brought 
by telegraph within ten days of Europe. There is a tri-niontbiy steam communication 
between California and the Eastern States and Europe, via Panama, and bi-monthly 
between Sau Francisco and the British Colonies to the North. The direct trade between 
England and California, and between the Colonies and California, is rapidly increasing; 
and a large proportion of the precious metals is being sent to London instead of, as 
formerly, to New York, The facilities for discounting commercial paper, and for de- 
posits, are at present very deficient, contrasting remarkably with those in the Atlantic 
States, in India, China, Australia, and other British possessions. Tbe rate of discount 
ranges from 1 to 2 per cent, per month, and the Exchange business is. capable of great 
development. The business of the bauk will include advances on shipments of gold, 
silver, and other produce of the country, the purchuse or bullion, tbe discount of com- 
mercial bills, advances for a limited period on available securities and merchandise, 
letters of credit, and all other usual banking operations.

IHE CRYSTAL SPRINGS HOTEL, situated four miles from the San Mateo Railroad 
depot, in a most spleudid valley, surrounded with large, beautiful, natural trees,

macadamized, makiug it the finest drive in California. The House and Cottages have 
been refitted aud thoroughly renovated. New spring bed3 and every modern improve- 
ment have been added to the sleeping department. The larder, as usual, contains all 
delicacies of the season. Stages leave San Mateo depot on the arrival or the trains for 
Crystal Springs. A One stable is now opened at San Mateo, by Messrs. Byrnes k Ames, 
who will furnish horses and carriages, or saddle horses, at low rates to the public.

Mateo. TONY UAKES, Proprietor.

SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER, AND 



[July 2, 1364. 



Report upon the Potosi Mine, Nevada Territory. 

To Geo. C. Wickware, F^q., President of Potosi Mining Company: 

Di ar Sir:— Since the date of my previous Report on the Potosi Mine, 

I have bad an opportunity tu inspect the recent explorations, and to renew and com- 
pare my former observations— and beg leave now to present the results for your con- 
sideration, with some suggestions growing naturally out of the subject, which I believe 
you will find worthy of your attention. The mine on the 13th of Juno was explored to 
the depth of 360 feet, by the sinking of the engine-shaft and driving drifts, and to the 
total depth of 368 feet at the then bottom of the winze at the end of the lower gallery 
south. The ore ground in tbe engine cross-cut measured 79 feet in width, including 
two feet of tbe eastern clay-wall, which is of good quality for ore, and full of quartzose 
kidneys of vein charged with ore. Of this body, 30 feet 6 inches are for rugenous quartz, 
much fractured ami crushed, carrying rich sulphurets of silver, and estimated to be 
worth, a* a mass, $S0perton. Adjoining this, on the west, iaa mass already described 
in my former Report, as the red quartz- vein— filling the whole chamber and separated 
from the former mass by a narrow zone or vein of white quartz. This last seems to be 
all that remains of the great porphyry mass (horse) of 94 feet in length, already de- 
scribed as existing in the 3O0 feet level above. This is an extremely interesting fact, 
the practical value of which will be apparent, in view of the discussions which have 
arisen respecting the true nature of theso intercalated masses of porphyry— whether 
they were to be regarded as vein matter, or as intruded masses. In the Potosi they are 
all (of whatever size) mo far as I have seen them, but fragments of the hanging or east- 
ern wall, and not to be distinguished mineralogically or practically from it. I think 
there can be no doubt of their fragmentary character, not that they came into the 
chasm by force of gravity from the hanging wall. At all events, the disappearance of 
the ' horse ' m your 360 feet level is certain, and makes room for tbe opening out of a 
body of productive ground nearly 80 feet in width, which is almost exactly the width of 
the great chamber of the Could A Curry at its widest development on the level of their 
lower tunnel. You will see that the announcement, quoted in iny former Report (May 
12th) from your Superintendent, of a body of ore almost 25 feet thick, is quite within 
the limits of truth, as confirmed by subsequent developments. The farthest point 
south, at which this body had been cross-cut -on tbe 13th, was olf the winze 80 feet 
south of the engine shaft, when it measured 34 feet 6 inches to the east clay-wall, but 
its western limits were not exposed. A sample of the black sulphurets, mixed with 
white quartz, taken overhead, midway the gullery goiug sonth, yielded on an assay : 

Gold 9-7*2 oz., value $20 67-1S , $200 92 

Silver 328-GO oz., value SI 30 427 IS 

Value per ton $028 10 

T explored the bottom of the winze, 36S feet from surface and 18 feet uuder the pre- 
sent level. It is sunk all tbe way in ore of moderate richness, being out of the white 
B.im from which the previous sample came, and which here goes to the east of it. 
From its bottom I selected a sample for assay, which gave the following results: 

Gold 0-60 oz., value £20 67-18 $12 55 

Silver 17-16 os., value $1 30 22 90 

. Value per ton $35 45 

Indications were visible, at the time of exploration, of the coming in of a rich seam of 
ore in the bottom of the 300 feet level. The clay in the eastern cross-cut had a dip of 
iO degs. east on the quartz seam, while ou stripping tho clay, the eastern fluccau was 
seen to dip east, at 50 degs., indicating the probability of a new zone making east. 
Since that time, as I learn from the Superintendent, a deposit of black sulphurets of 
Oliver has made its appearance in the bottom or floor of tbe drift, at3GU feet level, ex- 
tending 70 feet north and south of the cross-cut from the engine shaft. On cleaning up 
the floor, to erect timbers, this deposit was found to measure 17 feet, and to have on 
assay value of $400. The value. of these timely explorations and discoveries can hardly 
he over-estimated as giving a sound basis for confidence in tin' future of the mine. They 
show, on the most moderate calculation of quantities, at least one full year's supply of 
ore between the o00 and 300 feet levels— laid open and easily measured— supposing the 
rate of production to be 100 tons of ore daily. Tho value of these ores is believed to be 
fcSO per ton, for the portion estimated. My former Report showed tho existence of a 
year's supply of good ores in tbe levels above the 300 feet station. Thus, without esti- 
mating the ground beneath the 3G0 foot level, just named, or the low-grade ores held in 
reserve, you have already explored and open to view probably a two-years' stock of 
ores. The wisdom of the policy which has led to this development, is obvious even to 
those not well acquainted wtth the history of mining adventures; the fertile source ot 
failure in such efiorts being found in the neglect of timely works of exploration. You 
may now proceed to erect mills for the working of your ores, assured that tho mine will 
justify the expenditure; and you may, with a good conscience, commend the property 
as one of demonstrated value. An important element of value in the recent develop- 
ments io depth and extent on your property is in the effectual bar which is thus set to 
adverse claims; and in this view it is desirable, as soon as circiimstancesjidmit, to ex- 
plore the extreme eastern and southern limits of your property in ground now almost 
Completely unknown. Mention has already been made in the former Report of the ex- 
plorations in progress in your southern shaft, which offer reason to hope that a new 
zone ol productive ground will he opened at a point far beyond any now known to exist 
in that direction. This exploration should be pushed ax rapidly its other work will per- 
mit— both in depth and by drifts and cross-cuts at proper intervals. Although it may 
at times look in i promising, it is only by such means that new discoveries can be mode — 
while the cost paid out of tho current income of the mini- can hardly bo felt, as the force 
reqmred is small. Allusion has already been made to the fact that the shoots of ore in 
the- Corns took have, as for as observed, a southeasterly dip or trend. This is very con- 
spicuously shown in the Savage mine, as may be observed by the least practiced person 
on inspecting a map of that fine property, on which tho several "stations"' are laid 
down in position one above the other. It will be noticed that tho great chambers are 
found at each succeeding depth to the south and east of their position in tbe former 
level. This structure is plainly visible in the Potosi, also; when in tbe "drain level," 
248 feet east of tbe engine-shall, measuring perhaps one foot ; at 52 feet lower, it mea- 
sures four feet ; and again, at 60 leet lower, it has become 25 to 28 feet thick. Indica- 
tions of the occurrence of auotbor such descending shoot have made their appearance in 
the cross-cut east on the drain level in the clay ; but no explorations below have yet 
been made to determine its presence there. It is by the careful observation of such 
nice points of structure that the acute mine-manager detects the presence of unexpected 
wealth, and learns how to develop it. 

PaoDOCT OP the Mixe.— The quantity of ore sont to mills for reduction by the 1*0- 
tosf Mining Company, from May 1st, 1868, to May 30tb, 1S64, was 2o,b73 tons. During 
May, however, tbe yield was 3,2Go tons, and there is no reason, in the condition of the 
mine, why one hundred tons daily should not be extracted. This is a very large quan- 
tity of ore. and very few silver mines in the world are capable of yielding bo much. 
Nothing would justify so large an extraction, but tho almost fabulous abundance of 
second and third class ores in this portion of the Oomstock Lode, coupled with tbe fact 
that the wise policy of a forehanded development has put the mine already in a posi- 
tion to show a two years' supplv in advance. In this connection a few words will be 
in place on tho 

True Policy of Working tug Mixe.— There are two plans which may be followed in 
working a mine to insure dividends, after it is demonstrated, as in your case, that it 
contains an abundance of ores. The first plan is to proceed with the policy of a rapid 
extraction, milling the ores on tho best terms which can bo made with custom mills— 
without a very close regard to tbe loss iu tbe process, the object being an early return. 
The Objections to this course are manifold, but may be summed up in a word as a short- 
sighted, if not a suicidal policy, tending to a rapid exhaustion of the mine, tho waste 
of the large part of its ores, and constant heavy Loss to its stockholders. The second 
plan is that of a moderate rate of exhaustion, and the milling of its own ores by the 
Company, with the obvious advantage of saving a large per ccutage of tbe metals in 
the ores, of retaining the tailings, which are a perquisite ot the miller on the other 
system, and of gainiug on tbe mine whatever profit there is in the process of milling. 
The practical effect of the first of these two systems is well illustrated in tbe history 
ot the Gould & Curry, to which, I trust, I may be permitted to refer, without impro- 
priety, as the facts used are those common to all who have interested themselves in 



such matters. They have extracted abont 7,000 tons monthly, or 85,000 tons per an- 
num, yielding an aggregate, in round numbers, of about $G,u6o,0u0. Of this large ag- 
gregate $1,500,000 has gone to the stockholders, leaving $4,500,000 as the cost of mining, 
milling and management, or slightly over fifty dollars per ton costs. This statement 
makes no account of the loss in the tailings, which is probably forty per cent. The 
tailings io the slime pits at the Company's mill are worth, by assay, over one hundred 
and thirty dollars per ton — only rich ores having been worked at this mill. As this 
Company divides the metal saved by cuBtom mills with tbe millers equally, it is obvi- 
oub, if we put the cost of milling at fifteen dollars per ton, that there has been paid 
out in profits to millers more than the stockholders have received — the amount of 
dividends being about seventeen dollars and fifty cents per ton of the ore worked. 
This comparatively small mill sum is obtained only by tbe exhaustion of the mine, at 
the rapid rate of two hundred and fifty tons daily. Now it is easy to show that by the 
new policy now being inaugurated, a dividend of one hundred and fifty dollars, and 
probably of two hundred dollars per foot, can be made by working not ovor one-half 
the amount of ores previously consumed. This is to be accomplished by the Company's 
extracting no more ores than they can work at their own nulls, with an improved 
method of treatment. That such a result is quite practicable, no competent judge 
can doubt ; and at all events, a few months will unquestionably demonstrate it to the 
satisfaction of all. In yourown case yon pay to the millers twenty-fivedollarsper ton, 
obtaining from scventy-five-dollar ore about fifty dollars value, of which the mine ob- 
tains one-half. Tho following comparative statement shows the merits of the two 
systems— on tho basis of one hundred tons daily, from which fifty dollars per ton is 
saved, Bay 

100 tons daily, at $50 $5,000 

Paid to Mills 25 $2,500 

Mining costs 10 1.000 

3,500 

Benefit to the mine daily $1,500 

If the mine works its own ores tho account stands thus: 

100 tons daily. $50 saved $5,000 

Mining and Milling 2,500 

Benefit to the mine daily 2.500 

The annual difference amounts on six days in the week to 312,000 
The tailings contain 525 per ton, on this estimate, of which 
it will be possible to save by some method, say one- 
half, or $12 50 per ton, or 125,000 

Total saving to tho mine by working its own ores $437,000 

This estimate assumes the practicability of saving from the tailings one-half the 
metal they contain. This may be done in part by au improved method of milling, 
and, in part, by the use of the Patio — which is now in process of testiug by tbe Gould 
& Curry, on then- tailings. In any case, it does not admit of a doubt that the true 
policy of the mine consists in working its own ores, and holding a strict control by 
assay over every step of the process; thus alone can the life of the mine be prolonged, 
and the treasure contained in those bountiful gifts of nature — of which man is only the 
steward — rescued from loss and added to the grand aggregate of the world's resources. 
In conclusion, permit me, Sir, to congratulate you on the present position and pros- 
pects of the Potosi, which certainly challenges comparison with any other mine of 
equal size on the Contstock Lode, and gives promise of a splendid future. 

Yours respectfully, B. SILLIMAN, Js. 

San Francisco, June 22d, 1864. 



Letter from Gold HilL 

Gold Hill, June 29, 18C4. 

Mr. Editor — It is so long since I wrote you that I fear you will 

think I have forgotten you. My excuse must he that I have been away from this dis- 
trict for several weeks. I have only just returned from a visit to the vast and unmis- 
takably rich coal fields on the Truckee. You will remember that I mentioned io one of 
my letters, some time back, that we had received several bags of coal of very flue quality 
from that District. Since then tho whole country, to the extent of some seventeen 
miles by abont eight, has been taken up by a company composed of New York capital- 
ists and some of our most influential citizens, and named after one of New York's most 
upright and honorable mercbaut princes, "Daniel Low :" whose name alone carries a 
prestige of good fortune with it, and is a guarantee that the affairs of tbe company will 
be so conducted as to bring no stain ou his hitherto pure and unsnllied character. The 
Board of Trustees have laid out a town iu a beautiful situation, with trees and a never- 
failing stream of pure water flowing through the centre; certainly tho most beautiful 
site for tbe purpose in the whole Territory. It is called Carlwnville. Lots are selling 
from $05, $75 and $150 each, according to location. By the sale of these lots the com- 
pany will have a large fond in th« treasury for meeting the expenses of opening the 
mine. They are now vigorously at work, with a large force of men, sinking in several 
places at the same time. All is under the superintendence of their most efficient Presi- 
dent anu Superintendent, Rice II. Bartlett, fclsq., a gentleman who has had a life-long 
experience in coal mining, and who is a geologist of great experience and acknowledged 
talent, He informed me that the first day of August should witness the advent of 
coal, iu quantities, in Virginia City— an event we have all been long praying for, as 
wood is getting Bcaroer every day. The expense of laying the coal at the pit mouth 
will be £~ per ton; the hauling to Virginia, and mills in the neighborhood, and Gold 
Hill, $8; making in all $10 per ton. The consumption for manufacturing, milling and 
domestic purposes, is estimated at 500 tons daily; and as one ton of coal is certainly 
equal to two cords of our wood, it will meet with a ready sale at $20, leaving $10 a ton 
profit to the company and a vast saving to the mill owners, who are now paying $17 a 
cord for their wood. There ore but 518 shnres in the company, which must become im- 
mensely valuable, as, at the above figures, it will he seen that each one will yield some 
$9 a day of an income. Mr. Bartlett assures me that be will hnve no difficulty in ex- 
tracting the above amount of coal when he gets fairly under way, or as much more if it 
should be needed. Tbe benefit of this discovery to the Territory at large is at present 
hardly comprehended. Not ouly will low class ores now be worked with a profit, but 
furnaces for smelting iron ore will be erected, an abundance of which, of an excellent 
quality, is found on the ground. I look to see the town of Carbon ville n large and 
thriving place of business in a short year from this. Everything is iu its favor, fine 
climate, abundance, of fine trees, water, coal and iron. I had intended giving you a few 
items about our mines in this District, but have, I fear, already exceeded the space 
allotted iu your valuable journal for such correspondence. Next week I will post you. 
Yours, GOLD HILL. 

Married. 

St. Mary's Cathedral, California street, was, on the 30th ultimo, the 
scene of one ot the most fortune ate matrimonial ceremonies ever cele- 
brated in this city. On that interesting occasion H. W. Fortune, Esq., 
was united to Miss A. A. Cat-dwell, both of ihis city; the Rev. M. 
Walsh ufticiating in the nuptial ceremony. Many friends of Mr. For- 
tune in the city ot New York, and also at Stockton iu this State, will 
learn with interest and pleasure this new step toward tbe realization 
of human felicity which be has so auspiciously taken. That the affair 
is a remarkably lucky one "all around,' 1 is indisputable. The lovely 
and accomplished bride acquires at once a husband and "a Fortune," 
while he is doubly "fortunate" in securing such a partner; and the 
lovely daughters destined to spring from this happy union, will inevita- 
bly bestow a "fortune" upon the lucky fellows who win their hearts.

Tub Fctuhe : A Political Essay, by M. II. Tbroop. A. ltoman & Co., San Francisco. 

This is an attempt at a candid discussion of the legal and political 

questions growing out of tuo war — such as tho right of treating States as guiltyof trea- 
son, tbe lawfulness of the Emancipation Proclamation as a war measure, the policy to 
be adopted toward tho seceding States in case the government shall succeed in ttubduing 
the Rebellion, and the theory of "Reconstruction. " It is written in a spirit of calmness 
and moderation quite remarkable, considering the exciting topics of which it treats. 
Tho argument is conducted in the gentlemanly well bred style of a legal discussion in 
the binder English tribunals, is free from declamatory fervor, and has a philosophical 
rather than a political aspect. The first chapter is devoted to an examination of tbe 
doctrine of State Sovereignty, in tho course of which Senator Sumner's argument on 
the Bubject, published in tbe Atlantic M</nthli/, is coolly but remorselcsslydissecte'l. Tho 
discussion iu subsequent chnpters, of the constitutional power of the General Govern- 
ment to suppress a Rebellion, and of the doctrine of forfeiture of State Rights for State 
Treason, is very elaborate and apparently exhaustive. Mr. Tbroop thus announces the 
conclusion to which ho arrives on the subject of "Reconstruction:" "The Future to 
which tho nation stands committed by tbe instrument which alone legalizes the war, is 
therefore the restoration of the States and tbe people of tbe South to their former posi- 
tion in the Union, and that the former political rights and privileges of all the individuals 
within the seceded States shall remain intact, except so far as they may bo affected 
through the regular operation of tbe ordinary Courts of Justice." The Emancipation 
Proclamation is considered at length, in the fifth chapter, and is strongly condemned. 
Finally, the holding of a National Convention is recommended, for tbe purpose of hasten- 
ing tho ond of tbe war, remodelling the Constitution, and, "if possible," restoring the 
TJnion. In regard to the last-named object, Mr. Tbroop does not seem to be over san- 
guine, and iu fact expresses in terms bis grave doubt whether it "is possible to restore 
the Union without destroying Public Liberty 1" Those who wish to peruse a discussion 
of these subjects, of a more candid and thorough character than can be found in tho par- 
tisan papers, will do well to procure this volume. 

j^* Major General McDowell assumed command of the Department 
of the Pacific yesterday. General Wright continues in command of the 
District of California. Major R. W. Kirkham is announced as Chief of 
the Quartermaster's Department on this coast, relieving Lieut. Colonel 
Babbitt. Gen. McDowell further announces Captains Haven and Cut- 
ting as Aides-de-Camp.

SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER, AND 



[July % 1864. 



The British Workman's Friendly Improvident Society. 

This excellent Society baa been established solely to relieve the 
British Workmen — of all the money he can weekly save out of his 
■wages, with the view to lay it by for times of sickness or old age. In 
order most effectually to guarantee that this relief shall be with cer- 
tainty secured, the Improvident Soeiety will always hold its meetings 
at a public house, and the following regulations will be rigidly 
observed: — 

Rule I. That every British Workman who entertains a wish to join the Improvident 
Society shall, as a preliminary step, show his fitness for so doing by spending at the 
very least a clear half of his wages iu porter, ale or gin, or other alcoholic liquor, on 
the day on which he first applies to be a member. 

BcleII. That six weeks shall elapse between his application and the day of his 
election, and that, as a further test of his fltuess for the membership, the candidate 
shall nightly, during his probation, attend the public house where the Itnprovidents 
assemble, and spend not less than tenpence before he goes to bed. 

Rule III. That on the night of his election , the candidate shall stand at least a pot of 
beer to every member of the Society who is present at the meeting, and a shilling's 
worth of spirits to the treasurer and secretary and each of the trustees, who shall 
therein drink his health on bis admission to the Club. 

Rule IV. That the members shall assemble every Friday and Saturday at eight 
o'clock at night, those being the evenings on which wages are now paid; and that every 
member who, from any cause, is absent on either of those evenings, shall be fined a 
shilling for each night of his absence, which sura shall be demanded of him when ho 
next attends, aud nhall be spent in beer or other alcoholic liquor by the members of 
tbo Club. 

Ri'le V. That a subscription of one shilling shall weekly be paid in by every Im- 
provident; and that, at the time of his paying his subscription, he shall driuk a pot of 
beer and smoke not fewer than six pipes. 

Rule VI. That when any claim Is mado on the Society for any illness, accident, or 
death of any member, it shall be lawful for the treasurer to call a special meeting to 
investigate the claim, when a special pot of beer shall be served to every member out 
of the Club funds. 

Rule VII. That, if the claim be sanctioned, another special meeting shall bo con 
vened for payment of the Mum awarded, when another pot of beer shall, in like man- 
ner, bo served to every member who attends; and the secretary, treasurer, and 
trustees of the Club shall be allowed a bottle of wine a-head out of the Club funds, or 
if Lhey prefer it, a bowl apiece of punch. 

Rule V11I. That when any death occurs in the Society, all the members shall assem- 
ble to attend the funeral, and, to show their grief becomingly, shall Bpend the evening 
afterwards at their usual public house. 

Role IX. That the funds of the Society bo confided to the keeping of not less than 
four trustees, who shall not be held responsible for any misappropriation, shortcom- 
ing, or misuse. 

Rule X. That it shall be lawful for the trustees, whenever they think fit, to break 
up the Society, without ascinging to the members any reason for so doing, and with- 
out beiug required to exhibit their accounts, or to surrender any money remaining in 
their hands. 

With such admirable rules to provide for its safe working, it is im- 
possible to doubt the Improvident Society will prove a splendid boon 
to every working-man who joins it. Clearly the establishment of 
Bimilar societies will prove how needless and uncalled-for, not to say 
tyrannical and wickedly unjust, is the threatened interference in the 
matter by the Government, who, by their proposed measure, have been 
seen in their true colors as the violent oppressors of the British work- 
ing-man. Through the wisdom of the rules by which it will be regu- 
lated, the Improvident Society will very clearly demonstrate what good 
habits are engendered by clubs held at public houses, and with what 
absolute security the working-classes may entrust their hard-earned 
weekly savings to the friendly hands held out to relieve them— of 
their coin. 



An Incident of the Irish Rebellion of 1798. 

Among the many sad incidents of the Irish Rebellion of 1798, is the 
following from the Register of that year: — 

Executed at Wexford, in Ireland, for rebellion, aged near seventy, Cornelius Crogan, 
who possessed an unincumbered estate of more thun £6,000 a year. He had been high 
sheriff of the county Wexford, and twicea candidate to represent the county; had not 
been iu the habit of meddling witO the politics of that country, and was generally 
esteemed for his hospitality. At the same time and place wero also hauged two of 
his companions iu the same crime— viz, J. Colclougb and Beauchamp Bagnal Harvey. 
The latter was some time Commander-in-Chief of the rebels, in that part of the king- 
dom; and for his apprehension the government had offered a reward of £1.000. He 
■was taken in a cave in one of the Saltee Islands, whither he had fled with Mr. and Mrs. 
Colclougb, accompanied by Mrs. Harvey, her infant, and one servant maid. They bad 
provisions for six months, and all their plate and money. They were discovered, it is 
said, by soap-suds spilled at the mouth of the cave, which bad been observed by three 
officers, who were on a fishing party there, who immediately entered the cave with 
presented arms, and perceiving Mr. Harvey and Mr. Colclougb, desired them to sur- 
render, telhug them that resistance was vain, aa the cave was surrounded with armed 
men, and that they should be obliged to fire on them if they hesitated. Hereupon 
they Bnbmitled. aod walked out, but appeared greatly mortified on not seeing the force 
they expected, as they bad with them, in tbo cave, arms and ammunition iu abundance. 
Tbey were marched to a small boat, which waited for the officers, and conveyed to 
Wexford. On landing at the quay, Mr, Harvey appeared quite dejected, and extremely 
pale; but Mr. Colcloueh's fortitude did not, apparently, forsake him until he beheld 
his friend Kcogb's head on a pike. On inquiring whose bead that was, and hearing it 
was Keogb's he seemed like a man electrified , and sunk into all the anguish of despair, 
aod never recovered any show of spirits. Mr. Harvey was about 36 years of ago; 
formerly a practitioner in the law, and at his death possessed au unincumbered estatu of 
near £2,000 a year, besides personal property to the amount of £30.000. He married, 
about a year since, a young woman of considerable personal merit, but do fortune, tbo 
daughter of au houest and industrious tradesman at Clonegall. She had lately been 
delivered of a son, and remaius in a situation bordering upon distraction. Their heads 
were cut off, stuck upon pikes, and fixed on the market and sessions houses at Wexford. 



Squarza's Symposium. 



The "Symposium" is decidedly a continental institution— a place for 

taking a glass of wine, punch, ale, or other liquid comfort, in a sociable manner, aud 
not according to the oar-barons American fashion of standing up at a counter and gulp- 
ing it down with a "hare's luck!" At the Symposium the customers arc generally to 
be seen seated in groups around the tables, enjoying their wine in a leisurely civilized 
style, and seasoning the flavor of choice liquors with pleasant chat and an occasional 
glance at the newspapers. Here, as at the best Parisian cabarets, we can obtain a bot- 
tle of good wine, and enjoy it in the midst of pleasant surroundings. We may as well 
add that the "Friend of Garibaldi" dispenses, at his Symposium, a sparkling wine of 
finer flavor thau most of the imported champagnes, and much less costly. Let any in- 
dividual who is skeptical on this point call at Squarza's, aud ask for a bottle or his 
"Sparkling Moselle."

The above is, to our mind, the most infernal piece of treasonable 
impertinence that has ever encountered our loathing eyes. We on the 
"Pacific Slope," in the confines of the Bear (God bless bim !), know 
vvry well that the copperhead scoundrel of tho Philadelphia Age is a 
malignant falsifier of facts. We know that the telegraphic despatches 
vouched for by Stanton are always reliable, ever truthful, and never con- 
taminated with that eternal bragging, gasconading and boasting so char- 
acteristic of all official documents coming from the Rebel leaders. We 
feel assured that the writer of the above article is a sanguinary Brit- 
isher, an Irish Papist, or a blasted Jew; no ''full-blooded American" — 
"raised" in a free country — would presume to do so; there would be 
no chance of his "running ahead of bis ticket" if he essayed anything 
of the kind. We are loyal, and love and respect Stanton — as we do the 
existing Government God bless Abraham the wise!

SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER, AND 



[July % 1864. 



By " Underground." 

By our underground dispatches we are advised of "Maximilian o's" 
safe arrival in the city of Mexico, after some little fighting en route. 
His first act was a Proclamation of Amnesty. His reception in the 
Capital was enthusiastic. The bells pealed, the cannon thundered, the 
people shouted, and the celebration was crowned by a grand display 
of fire works in the evening. The new Constitution establishes uni- 
versal liberty with the fullest guarantees, and perfect freedom in re- 
ligious matters. Freedom of speech and of the press are also amply 
secured; and the principles of ministerial responsibility and the in- 
dependence of the Judiciary are recognized. It is, in short, a "free 
government" with " liberal institutions" in the largest sense. The new 
Empire has already been recognized b 7 all the great European powers; 
and Mr. Preston has arrived at the Capital, as an envoy from the South- 
ern Confederacy. There has been a parliamentary revolution in Eng- 
land, and Lords Derby and Clarendon have been sent for by the Queen 
to form a new ministry. * * * A loan of $500,000,000 for Mexico 
has been made in Europe. Three French men-of-war at San Bias, 
•another at Mazatlan, and others are about to occupy Guaymas and 
Manzanillo. * * * The French Emperor has authorized the Rams 
built at Bordeaux and Nantes to be transferred to the Mexican Empire. 
* * * The statement of the Bulletin and Alta, to the effect that 500 
French troops were ambuscaded by the Mexicans within five miles of 
Acapulco, is one of those ''embellishments of the truth." in which 
those journals habitually deal. The fa.ts are, that 50 soldiers, having 
'■gone into" the open country some five miles from Acapulco, came 
upon a barricade which they charged and took, the greasers who de- 
fended it flying precipitately. The entire loss of the French in this 
affair was six men wounded. So much for the veracity of those "re- 
spectable and influential" journals, the Alia and Bulletin. 

Our Grand Cartoon. 

This work of art, by far the greatest of its kind, ever attempted 
upon this coast, will burst like a meteor upon the astonished gaze of 
the San Francisco public, on Monday morning. All "personages" of 
any consequence, will find themselves portrayed to the life, we having 
had half-a-dozen artists lying in wait at the most frequented public 
places, to " take them off on the sly." In this way we have " bagged" 
an immense quantity of game. The Governor of the State will appear 
in a chariot drawn by two California Eagles. In the character of 
" Liberty," about to crown the Governor with a laurel wreath, the 
counterfeit presentment of a young lady well known in San Francisco 
circles, will be recognized. The Military, the Clergy, the Bar, the 
Board of Brokers, will all be copiously "drawn upon." Of the rep- 
resentatives of the Press, we have no less than eight portraits. The 
Firemen have not been forgotten,and Dave Scannell has been "jumped." 
The Water Companies, both Bensley and Spring Valley, have been 
duly honored. Beriah Brown will be seen bearing a banner inscribed 
" The Union as it was;" and the great author of the Consolidation Act, 
will be easily recognized with the motto, " The Constitution as it is." 
The Bank of California will be recognized under the banner in- 
scribed, " Our loyalty to Gold is unquestioned." Our Native Wines 
have also been remembered; the Orator, Poet, and Chaplain of the 
Day, have not been forgotten, and two of our artists are at present 
" after" the Reader of the Declaration. When our Fourth of July 
Cartoon comes out, one of two things will certainly happen — either 
the people of San Francisco will be astonished, or we shall. We shall 
strike off 6000 of the supplement, as we anticipate a large demand for 
copies to send East and into the interior for months to come. 

A Pretty Kettle of Fish. 

The city government seems to have got into a nice little scrape, 
which it will probably cost them several thousands of dollars to get 
out of. Three gentlemen, formerly owning the Union Hotel (recently 
purchased by the city), were treated with, for the purpose of inducing 
them to grant to the city a strip of land (belonging to the hotel prop- 
erty, on which the end. of said hotel is built,) about two feet wide, on 
Dunbar Alley. It seems, a deed conveying the land- to the city was 
executed by two of the joint owners; owing to some strange oversight, 
the necessity of having the third join in the deed was forgotten. More 
recently, since the purchase by the city of the hotel, in looking over 
the title, the flaw was discovered. The third of the joint owners (now 
in the city) was applied to for his signature, which was refused, he 
denying that he had ever stipulated to make any such conveyance. 
Of course be could not be deprived othis legal rights without his own 
concurrence iu the deed. The probability is, that the matter will re- 
sult in a fair compromise, to the great disappointment of the lawyers. 

Our Theologian Honored. 

In accordance with the suggestion of J-he News Letter, our theolo- 
gian, the Rev. Abbott E. Kittredge, has been appointed Fourth of 
July Chaplain. Bishop Kip waiving his objection to "meddle in 
politics," intimated to one of the committee, on Wednesday last, that 
he might be induced to officiate, although by so doing he ran the risk 
of giving umbrage to some of his aristocratic friends. But our candi- 
date had already been fixed upon. Kittredge will grace the platform; 
and we have no doubt he will reflect credit upon our judgment in 
recommending him. 

$3£- Quite a large number of Government Detectives arrived by the 
last steamer. They will be distrihnted throughout the State immediately. IV e would 
caution Copperheads ami others to be chary of speech. 



Sketches of the San Francisco Press. 
We have received the following communication from an old Califor- 

nian, who speaks or matters with which ho is personally cognizant. And we publish 
it without taking any liberties with the manuscript, as calculated to indicate some of 
tho curious features of the age iu which we live, and the rapidity with which men and 
institutions, including newspapers, pans through the most astounding vicissitudes of 
character and fortune. We do not propose to volunteer an endorsement of our corres- 
pondent's ideas — not at least as he has expressed them; but wc believe his statement 
of facts to be perfectly reliable: "The Alia is the oldest newspaper In San Francisco. 
Its nps and downs are various. Under the control of Ed. Gilbert it was a success; then 
it was a paper of dignity and character. Under Kerable and Conner it was so-snish; 
at last it became sickly and was almost in a dying condition when tho Vigilance Com- 
mittee excitement of '56 gave it new life, but still without much bottom or capital. 
MacCrellish, one of its present proprietors, was then a sort of hanger-on, or man of all 
work, in the establishment. He was a man without capital or status. The paper 
maintained a sickly existence for a time, until the inception of the celebrated contro- 
versy between Garrison and Vanderbilt. Then a loan of $5,000 gave it new lifo, and 
MacCrellish became the organ of Captain Garrison and the libeller, for the time beiBg, 
of the representatives of Vauderbilt. One of these, then rich, but now poor, had been 
the benefactor of MacCrellish. Thus the world goes. MacCrellish criuges to the up- 
start wealthy and has made himself rich, an the representative of the "solid men" of 
San Francisco. Such a press, and under such control, has done much towards debas- 
ing and degrading journalism in San Francisco. The Alia, under its present control, is 
a lit representative of the pride, folly and weakness of a class, ill fitted to give dignity 
and character to the city. The Bulletin is a singular compound: it, too, has had its 
chauges. Under the coulrol of King of Wm.,itset out iu a new liue of journalism. 
Its ctreer led to the death of its proprietor. It theu became to a certain extent the 
organ of a local party, miscalled me People's; its personalities constituted its pith and 
glory. With it originated the morbid appetite for slander and defamation. It has 
elevated the bad and crushed the good. Its career has been a success, built up at tho 
expense of private character. Money Is its god. The wealth it has got may fitly be 
called blood-money. Too blood of James King of Wra. gave it mcaus and power. It 
too has been an iugrate. It has stung many that befriended it in its weakness. Per- 
sonality continued to be its characteristic, though more dignified in its baseness. 
Ne.^btit, its principal editor, is a man or vigor «nd power. Cunning aud cold he ensconces 
himself, like the terrapin, in hia shell, and in the present state of society he will con- 
iinu'_- to ojake money and maintain a position of quasi respectability. With its in- 
creasing prosperity there has beeu a tendency to aim at more decency. Of late years 
it has even assumed a dignified tone, aud pretended to rebuke journals that approxi- 
mate to its own former spirit. This is quite amusing to old Californians who remem- 
ber what the Bulletin was. It is now a singularly constituted concern, made up of the 
most heterogeneous materials. Nesbitt, shrewd, sagacious and unprincipled; Tutllc, 
evangelical and pious; Fitch, a trickster and a miser; Avery, an intelligent, cultivated 
and very decent but unfortunate man; and Simouton, an intelligent and not over- 
scrupulous correspondent. Such are the past history and present components of this 
ablest aud most influential of San Francisco journals. 

Schools — How to Make a Fortune. 
Keeping a boarding-school has never been considered in the light of 

a profitable business. The best are generally the least profitable. When money is 
made out of educational establishments, it is generally by the sacrifice of the comforts 
and advantages which the pupils ought not to be deprived of. Thus a Yankee Doolbe- 
boys or Doothegirls Hall might succeed, where a concern conducted upon liberal 
principles would go to the dogs. But we can suggest a way in which a haudsome for- 
tune and a large estate may be acquired iu this ordinarily profitless busiuess. There is 
a great field for enterprise now awaiting the coming man; but the reaper must have 
qualific tious. Be must be as oily as Cbadband, aud as pious as Pecksniff. He must 
be smooth, plausible, voluble, politic, aud if not wise, must at least possess the faculty 
of looking as wise as Minerva's owl. Armed with these qualifications let him go into 
the evangelical vineyard, and wax eloquent over the alarming progress of Roman- 
ism. I,et him make it his business to see all the wealthy Presbyterians. Baptists, 
Contrrtgationalists, and the other Evangelicals, and deplore the lack of "cheap evan- 
gelical education;" let him talk of the low prices charged at Catholic schools, of the 
danger of that sect gradually engrossing tho whole busiuess of education, etc., etc. 
When his pious eloquence has produced the requisite elfect, it will be time to throw out 
the idea that be rather suspects that the Lord has a special mission lor him, to wit: to 
found a great "Institute," which shall arrest the advance of Komaoism. and save the 
future generation from the claws ot the Scarlet Lady oT Babylon, by furnishing all the 
childreu of Evangelical parents with Protestant education at Roman Catholic rates. 
Of course he expects to make uothing by the business; it is missionary work and must 
be a losing one; but with the grounds, building, furniture, etc., paid for by pious 
contributions, he can stand the current expenses himself. In addition to himself, he 
is willing to devote half-a-dozen sisters, brothers-in-law, and other relatives to tho 
good work. Though these connections have large families of their own to support, 
they are all williug to make the sacrifice. By playing these cards skilfully, our friend 
can get enough Evangelical contributions to purchase extensive grounds, erect a pala- 
tial building, furnish it like a royal resilience, where he and all his kin can live like 
princes. In managing the details of the busiuess, be must combine the shrewdness of 
a stockbroker with the skill of a pettifogger. However profuse in oral promises he 
must he careful what he signs. For appearance sake be must have Boards of Direc- 
tors, Trustees, etc. , etc ; but he must he sure to have the legal title to all the property 
in his own name. Having got tbiugs comfortably fixed, he won't of course be such an 
ass as to think of keeping bis promise about a "cheap school," else how are he aud his 
retainers to live in a style suitable to their residence. We throw out these suggestions 
in the hfi[ie of accomplishing a stroke of philanthropy by which religion shall be pro- 
moted, tho State saved, aud some pious family handsomely provided for at the same 
time. 

American Finances as Appreciated Abroad. 

The Memorial Diplomatique has a sharp criticism on the condition of 
the finances of the Government, from which it is evident that Chase is 
not considered quite a Colbert. We translate a brief extract: — 

"The Secretary of the Treasury of tho United States has published his official table of 
the liquidated debt of the Government. On the 30th of Soptember last this debt was 
stated at $1,222,113,553; on the 15th of March it increased to $1,580,201,776. By this 
rule of proportion the Federal debt will attain, by the 1st of July proximo, to $1,805,- 
600.000— that is to say, $17 1,400,000 in excess of the figures anticipated by Mr. Chase 
in his estimate or budget for 1864. In any uther country, a Minister who would make 
so great a blunder would lose his credit and he obliged to retire from public attairs ; but 
in the United States they find the mistake quite na:ural, and Mr. Chase continues with 
them the greatest financier in the world. In fact, in the United States they have a 
peculiar mannor of understanding finances — or, rather, they have no manner of under- 
standing n( all. Tin' 'go-ahead Yaukce' appears in that, as in many other matters, the 
entire soicne of American statesmen." 



The Anti-Gold Bill. — The object of this recent enactment of Con- 
gross was to equalize the current values of the precious metals reckoned by weight and 
the precious greenbacks reckoned by printed denominations. Its effect on those rela- 
tive values was, like Atilla'a sword, thrown into the scales! — Gangrenes incontinently 
kicked tho beam ! 

JJSSt- We notice by last steamer the following distinguished arrivals: 

Mnjor General McDowell and family. Hon, M. S. Latham, S. F. Butterworth and family , 
Sylvester Mowry, Collector James, Mnjor Del Veccio, and franklin Haven, Jr., U.S.A., 
son of l'ranklin liaven, President of the Merchants' llauk, Boston.

G — t: Let B rd Uke him! Well, I thought you knew Ben better than that I 

Why, he hasn't been within three miles of tho enemy siuce he has been down there.

give me Ben B — r before any thief in op out of Smg Singl

(Our special reporter with the Array of the Potomac would have seut us the particu- 
lars of the private interview between Beauty aud the Beast, but — "at this moment tho

A Temperance Band. 
There is rejoicing in Dashaway Hall. Eight erring mortals have been 

snatched as brands from the burning; eight notable citizens have struggled out of a 
whirlpool of whisky on to tho rock of temperance. Last Sunday, Elisha Cook, Judge 
Benuet, Nat. Iugalls, Captaiu Bob Haley, T. Charles, Sir. Clarke, and Charley P. Duane, 
sigued the pledge. Lawyer Klisha Cook apologized for doing buch a thing, but gave as 
a rcasou tho Tact that whisky was gelliug so bad that it was not safe to drink it. Col. 
James, they say, will follow EliBha. It would be a most happy thing for him and the 
whisky-sellers. C. P. Duane, Esq. , has giveu up whisky in disgust, since it led him 
into Uiat Sanitary one-legged drummer buy scrapo. Note everybody that thero aro 
eight sober lawyers in the city — long may they remain Bo. 



A Florid Writer. 
The New York Tribune has engaged a war correspondent of immense 

descriptive powers, judging from an extract telegraphed lo the San Francisco papers 
this week. The poetical penuy-a-liucr describes an assault on Petersburg: "Enthusi- 
astic cheering aloug the line broke forth at the onset; wounded men waved their gory 
arms and shouted their gladness from bloody-cheeked mouths!" Bloody-cheeked 
mouths is elegant, unique, unsurpassable! Afterwards our bloody, cheeky corres- 
pondent makes another vigorous assault on English grammar, and tells us that a 
charge was made over "cornfields thickly imbedded with stumps!" 

Misapprehension. 
Many persons seeing an advertisement headed "to the Butchers of 

San Francisco," requesting them to join in the Fourth of July Procession, erroneously 
suppose that the modical fraternity arc the parties referred to, more especially as the 
notice is signed by a surgeon. Thi3 is not the case. The invitation is extended to 
those worthy men who kill aud carve beeves and muttons for the benefit of Lho public, 
not those who kill and carve human beiugs. 

Times are Changed. 
Last year the Fourth of July celebration in this city was a miserable 

fiasco, iu consequence of hundreds refusing to participate on account of Mr. Lincoln's 
Declaration of Emancipation being coupled to and read with the Declaration of Inde- 
pendence. Who will object now ? Wo have progressed siuce then.

At the Play. 
It is some time since San Francisco was as fortunate in its dramatic 
amusements as at present At Hagufre's.Wheallelgfa plays admirably and draws large 
houses; bin acting in "A Hull in a China Shop," which wo may remark is not founded 
on the English intervention in the Celestial Empire, is inimitable. Miss Richings 
charms all hearers at the Academy of Music; she is really a most sweet singer and 
admirable actress. At the Metropolitan, one of the beststock companies ever brought 
together in this city i>< playing good pieces with admirable neatness and talent. The 

Minstrels at the Eureka wouid be well enough if they would present some novelty, 
say ouca in six months; their programme is nearly worn threadbare. The Ijmcashire 
— or, as they call themselves, Swiss,— Bellriogers have arrived. Their performance is 
charming. Julia Blaisdell is, perhaps, tho greatest " harplste " living. Altogether, 
there is any amount of first-class umusemenl, and it is sought after, though minmg 
stocks arc down. . 

Par Nobile Fratrum. 
Death has caused a cruel separation between two kindred spirits; a 

well -matched pair is spoilt. A. J. Butler, brother of the Beast, has found that his pile 
of booty is not a joy for over. Ho has gone to his own place! Mav these noble 
brothers not long be separated! Willi touching fraternal atlection, A. J. having left 
$2,000,000 behind him, wills $1,000,000 of the swag to his brother. Horrible to relate, 
ccrtaiu parties have proceeded from New Orleans to New York, for the purpose of 
disputing General Butler's right to this little token of brotherly affection, stating tho 
hard six month's earnings of the industrious A. J. B. to bo stolen property. A Cop- 
perhead Senator has actually had the effrontery to introduce a resolution calling for an 
inquiry into how the Butler brothers made $2,000,000 so speedily. We trust that such 
an indelicate proceeding will be promptly voted down, and that General Butler will bo 
able to hang on to his million, and will, moreover, be found something else to hong to, 
in Virginia. 

General "Wright. 
General Wright has issued a " Farewell Order," in which he bids 

adieu to the people of California. This document is a good, honest composition, and 
invnluablo as a textbook lor his successor. General Wright, during tho time he has 
occupied the position of Commander of the Pacific Department, has gained tho respect 
and admiration of all goort citizens. Ho is, in overy sense of the word, a gentleman. 
California owes him a debt of gratitude for his admirable tact and skill in discharging 
the functions of his office which should never bo forgotten. However competent his 
successor may prove, all will nevertheless maintain that General Wright, as commau- 
der of this Department, was, in an extraordinary degree, "tho right man m the right 
place." 

No, You Don't, Ketchnm! 

Mr. Morris Ketchnm, of New York, says " Those Californians are 

deuced particular; they won't take greenbacks, as we are forced to do; but I've got a 
plan to catch 'eml" The philanthropic Ketchnm, proposes to establish a National 
Bank in California, to issue notes which will ho guaranteed to be redeemed in gold. 
He knows "California will welcome such an institution, provided the notes aro conver- 
tible into gold at pleasure!" Much obliged, Keichum; don't trouble yourself; twenty- 
dollar pieces are good enough for us. We don't want to be converted, aud have banks 
enough for our purposes. 

Billiards for Ladies. 
The New York correspondent of the Squeak takes the ladies of that 

city to task for playing billiards. Thinks it is a cue-rious amusement for ladies. 
Ladies mighl,andwo are afraid do, do many more unladylike things tbau play 
billiards. It would be quite a boon to the ladies of San Francisco if some spirited, 
and perhaps rather strong-minded, female were to establish a ladies' billiard room, 
where they could amuse themselves with this fascinating, graceful, and perfectly lady- 
like game. 

Extraordinary Announcement. 
An advertisement appeared in the city papers this week, announc- 
ing a performance at a Theatre for the "benefit of tho children of Mrs. Quinn, who, 
together with her son, lost tiieir lives at tho late fire on Natoma street." Becauso 
people are charitable is no reason that they should be ungrammatical. If Mrs. 
Quiun's children, "together with her eon," lost their lives, we should suppose them 
to be beyond the reach of charity, and the benefit would bo that of tho undertaker. 

New Paper. 
We understand a new paper is to be started by tho Postmaster, for 

the purpose of advertising letters. It will be about the size of the Blanicet, and wilt 
bo enlarged if necossary. The Yelp is making too good a thing out of six columns of 
claimed-in-valn letters, and it is but right that Perkins should enjoy the fruits of 
his labors. 

Those Dear Russians. 
The Russian Admiral is positively to leave ns this time for good. 

Let us speed tho parting guest; it is too bad after welcoming him with a flourish of 
trumpets, to let him go out at the back door without so much as sending a flunkey to 
open it for him. Don't let him pop off in that way I 

TJn'appy Man. 
Mr. Knapp advertises that Mrs. Knapp has left his bed and board. 

No doubt he misses his nap in bed. 

Chase, the Chiffonier. — This redoubtable rag-dealer has lately been 

into tho market, endeavoring to swop some of his gangrenous refuse for gold, with the 
advantage of a prohibitory act against all competition. The result is a rise in gold be- 
yond any Treasury kite-flying. The effort was simply what ia popularly denominated 
a "wild-goose Chase."

grade. The South Park lots have 200 feet beteen the lines of houses laid out for avenues 
and a public garden, which is as fertile and well kept as any ornamental piece

District Court and Supreme Court of the United States respect it— besides the title has 
beenlbrever quited by a final decree nnd judgment against the city — so that there is not

Lloyd's New Amalgamator is a Complete Success. 

THE RESULTS OF THE WORK DONE by it during the past week are:— From 300 
pounds of taiings from Volcano, Amador County, worked for Mr. C. B. Culver, 
was obtained 6 oz. 12 dwts., equal to $40 to the ton of 2.000 rounds. The original ore was 
worked by the old Mexican Arnstra. From COO pounds of tailings, the original ore bav- 
ins; been worked by Professcr Ryerson's Superheated Steam Machine, was obtained 
l.v'.i o/--. to the ton, Ryerson'a machine having only got 5 ozs. to the ton from the ore. 

Result from 30 pounds of ore from Amador County, worked tor Mr. H. F, Williams, of 
Graves A Willi? ms, of the Pacific Fruit Market, of this city, was obtained: 

Cold $73 33 

Silver 42 

To the Ton $73 75 

The assay being m;>dc by Messrs. Molitor A Co. 
From 20 pounds of the same ore, worked for the same party, was obtained: 

Cold $63 30 

Silver 04 

To the Ton $63 34 

Assay made by Kellogg, Hewston & Co. 

The mine trom which the above ore was taken has turned out over $10,000 gold and 
silver, and the average yield, as worked upon the spot, has only been $6 to the- ton. 
Varney's Pan has obtained as high as $15 to the ton from this ore— the difference in 
favor of Lloyd's Amalgamator being, over Varney's Pan. S53 54.2 per ton: and over the 
works at the mill S62 54.2 per ton. Result from 16 pounds of ore from Queen City 
Company's claim, El Dorado Canon, Arizona Territory, worked for Mr. T. Mudgc, was 
obtained; Gold, St 19; Silver, SI 52, amounting to S2 71-100— equal to $36133-100 to the 
ton— the assay being made by Messrs. Molitor A Co. Mr. Dcctk. ns, at his metalurgical 
works in this city, obtained bv the Varney Pan $164 to the ton— the difterence in favor 
of lloyd being S2U7 33-100 to the ton. 

Result from 68 pounds of ore from the Lady of the Lake Company. Lcland Lode, San 
Francisco District. Arizona Territory, worked for C. W. C Rowel), was obtained: 
$744 in Gold, 5025 in Silver— $7 69— equal to $22618-100. Assay made bv Messrs. 
Molitor A Co. 100 [mtinds of the same ore worked by Wheeler's pan, and assayed by 
Kellose * Hewston A Co., yielded ¥568-100— equal to $11160 to the ton. Difference in 
favor ot Lloyd being S114 58-100 to the ton. Lloyd's is undoubtedly the best Amalgama- 
tor yet introduced, and is certain to supersede all other A m alga ma tors now in use.

SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER, AND 



[July 2, 1864. 



THE FOURTH. 

In "Seventy-Six" our sires were bricks, 

Their eons are nothing shorter; 
Whilst rebels they prove every day 

That they are bricks and mortar, 
In solid rows, of hated foes 

A good account they render; 
They fiercer grow with every blow, 

And die — but ne'er surrender. 
It may be well not to rebel, 

But live in peace and plenty; 
Yet, says the throng, what now is wrong, 
. Was right in "six and seventy." 
Then to the dead give every shred 

Of honor worth tho giving, 
We dare not yet pay off that debt 

To rebels that are living. 
We may admire yon sacred fire 

On Freedom's altar burning: 
If men be wise they'll not despiao 

The lesson they are learning. 

General Wright 

On the part of the foreign residents of California we bid General 
"Wright farewell, and wish him success and happiness. If his removal 
from this command be of advantage to him we rejoice, though we sin- 
cerely regret his removal, no matter how worthy his successor. Gen. 
McDowell need expect no mercy from the extra-loyal press; like his 
predecessor he has been educated at West Point, is a gentleman, and 
consequently little likely to deserve the applause of the loyal press, 
whose chief mouthpiece is a promoted ostler. 



Headquarters Department of the Pacific, \ 
San Francisco, Cal., June 21st, 1864. j" 
3b the loyal Citizens of lite Pacific Coast: 



On the evo of my being relieved from tho command of the Department of the Pacific, 
it is deemed a proper occasion to take a retrospective view of the three years I "have 
been in command. When I first assumed command of the Department, embracing all 
tho States and Territories west of tho Rocky Mountains, I was not unmindful of tho 
high trust reposed in me by tho Government; and the following communication, 
which I addressed to the Adjutant-General of the Army, after the .expiration of tho 
first year of my command, will exhibit the course I thought- proper to pursue, and 
which has been persistently followed during the whole period of my administration of 
military affairs on this coast : 

" Headquarters Armv of the Pacific,! 
San Francisco, October 27th, 1862. J 
Adjutant- General V. S- Army, Washington, D. C: 

Sib : — I have served on the Pacific Coast for ten years, the last year in command of 
this Department; my duties have called me to nearly every section of this greatcoun- 
try ; from the sunny plains of the South to tho farthest bounds of our possessions in 
tho North, I have been called, either to battle with our savage foes or to aid in tho 
preservation of this beautiful land from the horrors of civil war. During this long 
period, I have had ample opportunities of judging of the character of tho people, and 
tho value to tho Union of these remote possessions of the United States. Previous to 
the war with Mexico, but little, comparatively, was known of this country. A few of 
our most adventurous people had found then: way across the Continent, and taken up 
their abode either in Oregon or California. But when peace was restored, and we ac- 
quired California, and coeval with that event, the discovery of gold mines, extensive, 
and almost fabulous in richness, it caused a large influr of population. It was not 
alone from the States of our Union that they camo — every quarter of the globe, as well 
as tho Isles of tho Ocean, contributed to swell the number. It will thus be seen that 
this coiiutry was ovorruu and occupied by people bringing with them and retain- 
ing all their home prejudices, and ill calculated to establish a colony of loyal citizens, 
eager to promote the prosperity of the country. Time and contact have done much to 
harmonize and smooth down the discordant elements of this incongruous population. 
"Vet the outbreak of this formidable rebellion in our land had a tendency to revive those 
Bectional sympathies and attachments, which have prompted men to glory in the fact 
that they aro American citizens, but that they are from such or such a State, to which 
their paramount allegiance is due. Happily the number of men who thus ignore the 
authority of the Federal Government, and declare their fealty to tho State from which 
they came, Ib small compared with that of the men who are Americans, and who love 
the Union, and aro willing to risk their all for its preservation. Such was tho character 
and such tho division of sentiment on this coast, when I assumed command of tho De- 
partment. I saw at once, that to overcome these threatening difficulties it was neces- 
sary to be watchful, vigilant, and firm; not to create unnecessary alarm in the public 
mind by hasty and ill-advised acts, but to pursue tho even tenor of my way, regardless 
of personal consequences ; and feeling assured that such a course could not fail toBecure 
the respect of political parties of every complexion, nnd ultimately redound to the honor 
of our government and country. If what little I have done has contributed in the 
smallest degree towards preserving intactonr glorious Union, and maintainingunsullied 
our Flag, I shall feel more than repaid. It affords me high satisfaction to inform the 
General-in-Chief that, during all the period of my command in this Department. I have 
received the most cordial approval and assistance from the Governors and State officers, 
as well as from tho most promim-nt citizens. Very respectfully, yourobedient servant, 
G. WRIGHT, Brigadier-General U. S. A., Commanding." 

General Wright, farewell ! California can never forget you; and 
stands now with bated breath, hoping to find your successor — worthy

Yesterday T s Call has a paragraph saying: — "It is reported that a new 
Union paper is to be started in San Francisco, with Laurens Upson as 
editor." The Call man must have been reading an old copy of the 
News Letter. We were the first to get wind of the project, which we 
announcod two weeks ago. We can now add another interesting fact 
in relation to the matter, of which the Call has no inkling; it is this: 
The Associated Press will admit the new Union paper, in order to kill off 
the Flag, the death of which has been fully resolved upon, and may 
now be regarded as a fixed fact. If a Coroner's Jury ever sits upon 
the corpse, the verdict will be, ''Died from the effects of injuries in- 
flicted by itself."

Letter from Reese River. 

Ausnx, Juae 20, 1864. 

Morgan & Muncey, Oregon and North Star are now paying mines in 

this District; though they are not worked up to their full capacity yet the regular net 
proceeds are large from each, and when a sufficient number of furnaces shall havo 
been put in operation, the products from each of these mines will be enormous. So it 
will be with a large number of mines in this district now being opened, but for want 
or proper machinery being completed are not working their ores. All of the following 
named mines are as good and some of them belter than the first above named: Gen. 
Hooker, Isabella, Maggie, Diana, Blue Ledge, Black Ledge, Osceola, Gem, Old Colony, 
Olancho, (specimens taken from all parts of the vein of this mine averaged, by asuay, 
$2,000 per ton; such ore canuot be found in quantity outside of the Reese River Moun- 
tains). The Toronto has a veiu of five feet in width and will pay $500 per ton. The 
Sonoma also has a large and rich lodge. The Rowel and Pier, Cox and Rose, Union No. 
2, Tesora and James' River, Marshal. Imperial, Manhattau, Eureka, Cunningham and 
Jo. lane arc also the best of silver mines. Building furnaces and making other neces- 
sary improvements at our mills, to facilitate the proper working of ore. proceedB 
rapidly. Tho roasting furnaces at Dorsey's Mill are nearly completed and will bo in 
operation in a few days, which will give some other of our mines the chance to pay 
their owuerB. The Clifton Mills are also making the necessary improvements iu 
furnaces, etc., and will soon be in successful operation. We now see no reason why 
we shall not bo able to ship silver bars by the ton before the present year closes. At 
Santa Fe District the work goes bravely on. Many new discoveries have lately beeu 
made of great value, which add much to this already desirable and beautiful locality, 
already rich in such mines as the Olbo, National, Mammoth, Mammon, King, Silver 
Light, Magnolia, San Francisco, Silver Moon, Calaveras, Mother of Ledges, La Plata, 
Queen Dowager, Hobokou, Gem, Nevada, Fashion. Standard, and many other* of great 
promise. Capital is much needed in this important District. From Uuiou District we 
hear little; the newspaper about to be published at lone, in that rich and very impor- 
tant district, will sonn enlighten us as to the many rich mines there. We bear that 
the Crown, Pleidas, Ashland, Daniel Boone, Cherokee, Shamrock, Warrior, and several 
others, are taking out extremely rich ores. Mills are sadly needed in this district, it 
being in all probability about the richest silver mining district in the Reese River 
country. Amador District is at present attracting much attention. The developments 
every day made are or the most satisfactory character, and all who own stock in such 
mines as the Amador, Old Hickory, Rough and Ready, Plumas, Fort Wagner, Legal 
Tender, Standard and Reul del Minus, need not fear but they will some day pay well 
for the investments mude in them. Bunker Hill District is one of great promise; as 
yet but a small amount of work has beeu done upon the very many good mines there 
found. The attention of capitalists is particularly called to this district. The Emigra- 
tion from the East is now coming in. Many will slop here and make the Reese River 
country their permanent home. We invite them all to look well into the vast re- 
sources of this country before leaviug for California; every inducement is held out to 
the industrious man and the man of capital to take advantage of the varied resources 
here presented. Its genial climate, great extent, rich mineral and agricultural lauds, 
on which all who choose may dwell, and with certainty of ample fortunes. No other 
portion of Nevada Territory or of the Pacific Coast presents such inducements to those 
in search of wealth and comfort as does the Reese River country. 

The Political Situation. 

The storm raised by Mr. Gladstone's outbreak in those localities over 

which the influence of Lord Palmorston is known to bo most powerful has ceased with 
a suddenness which can Bcarcelyfail to create a feeling of suspicion. The Times and the 
Gl«be., which raged as furiously as the heathen for some three or four days, no longer 
roar even with tho gentleness of sucking doves, and the Morning Post, which was from 
the outset more cautious, perhaps because better informed, now leads the public atten- 
tion to the new Holy Alliance, the misdeeds of Austria, Prussia, and Russia, or to any- 
thing else whereto it can hope to turn it away from tho impending domestic crisis, and 
the mode of dealing with it by a re-distribution of party forces which all men saw to be 
indicated by circumstances. It is not easy for men of ordinary capacity, whose minds 
are unobscurcd by party mists, to understand the meaning of this change of tone. To 
such an observer it would seem perfectly clear that there is no Judical Reform power 
existent in the country, and that if a Conservative Opposition were only led with coiff- 
mon courage and prudence, Mr. Gladstone and his small following would be cast off as a 
mere scum, inoffensive from its tenuity. It is not thus, however, that facts are noted 
and chances calculated by the actors in party struggles ; and it may be that, improba- 
ble as tho speculation would appear, the standard of revolution has been raised by Mr. 
Gladstone with the assent of his colleagues, and that tho movement is intended for a 
hustings demonstration. HLord Pulmerston does not cast off his Radical Chancellor of 
the Exchequer, it can only be inferred that he has lost his usual sharpness of prevision, 
or that bis colleagues look upon him as superannuated, and aro playing their cards 
without his privity; that, knowing no other key-note for a popular cry but Reform, 
they are making an agitation which they fail to find. It is, no doubt, but a sham ; still 
they hope that it may serve their turn, and they perhaps find themselves driven to this 
miserablo course by tho peculiar difficulties which hamper their foreign policy. With 
respect to these, extraordinary rumors are now so prevalent and so loudly whispered, 
that it would bo affectation, nay, even a dereliction of duty, were we not to allude to 
them. It has been long received as certain that the Queen has personally intervened 
in the Dano-German quarrel so earnestly as to prevent tho Minister from taking tho 
course that a consideration for tho peace of Europe and for the honor of tho country 
pointed out, nnd it is now said that her Majesty actually refused to sanction the instruc- 
tions for the sailing of the fleet to the Baltic, and for its conduct there, which were 
submitted to her. She will havo no war, nor threatening of war, if either is to be used 
for the protection of the Danes and the repression of German ambition. To what an ex- 
tent tho Queen's predilections in favor of Prussia are carried may, perhaps, bo seen in 
what at first night would seem to be the very trifling circumstance of her appearance at 
the late Court concert in a decoration which is so unlikely to have been offered to her 
that it can only be supposed to have been assumed as a special demonstration. It is 
not in accordauce with Court etiquette for her Majesty to wear any foreign order, ex- 
cept as a compliment to a foreign prince present upon the occasion ; but at the cere- 
mony to which we refer she wore tho Prussiun Order of Louisa, the history of which is 
remarkable. It was founded in 1814 as a decoration for services rendered by women in 
hospitals to wounded and sick soldiers, and is conferred equally npon married and single 
women — Prussians by birth or naturalization. The exhibition of such a badge at the 
present moment must be accepted as a strong expression of sympathy in a direction 
totally Opposed to the feeling of tho country, and therefore in a high degree embar- 
rassing to the Government. Thus forced into a dileutmu off the horns of which there 
was no escape, a diversion may have been sought by recurring to the old feint of a Re- 
form agitation. — Dublin Evening Mail. 

The "Wide "West. 

Messrs. Krauss & Reese have made an assay of ore from this mine, 
which was taken from a drift about thirty feet above the bottom of the 
iucline, and the following is the result: — Gold, $35 40; Silver, S12 25; 
,$47 65 to the ton of 2,000 pounds. Mr. John F. Pope, S.W. corner of 
California and Davis, is the Secretary of this company. 

^&- "Mother," said Ike Partington, "did you know that the 'iron 

horse' has but one ear?" "One earl merciful gracious, child, what do you meau ?" 
"Wuy, the ongine-eer, of course."

have had a mouth given them. We wish it was six months.

PACIFIC MINING JOURNAL,

The English Ministry. 

Mr. Editor. — The latest news from Europe informs us that the Pal- 
merston Ministry was defeated by a majority of ten. It is supposed 
by many that tbis defeat necessarily implies a change of ministry, and 
that tbe next mail from Europe will bring the intelligence of Palmer- 
ston's resignation. This is not the case. Lord Palmerstoo, if defeated 
in any important ministerial measure, would probably uppeal to the 
people; that is, would dissolve Parliament and trust to a general elec- 
tion resulting in a majority in favor of the ministry. This Lord Pal- 
merston would do with the less scruple as a general election will, in 
the natural order of events, take place next year. If, on tbe other 
hand, the majority against the government was on some measure of 
trifling importance, and tbe Prime Minister is convinced that in weighty 
matters be can still command a majority, he will pass it over without 
notice as he has done on more than one occasion in his political career 
and afterwards weathered the storm. Lord Russell is the Jonah who 
will sink the ministerial craft unless thrown overboard, and it is proba- 
ble that he will be sacrificed; if he be thus disposed of, we doubt 
whether flu-re will be any whale to receive him — the Radical whale 
would swallow him if it could, but tbe Conservative party flud him too 
strong for their stomach. Lord Russell, like General Chipman, has 
"outlived his usefulness," he is not strong enough for his place; he 
ought to be, and probably will be, discharged with a good character, 
which however will not avail to get him another situation. B. 

[After all, it is most probable that Lord Clarendon -will be Prime 
Minister — Earl Russell cannot be very easily got rid of. — Ed.]

J. II. Junks, Esq— />rar Sir: In fWIog JOO my opinion piiv.Urly, 
as you wiabi'd ma to do, about our prospects of Boding good ore, I 
will tmV lb;U I Imr.llv iliiuk it possible fur us to tail to liinl it In some 
part of tin- nine, qtute MiluVh'iit in quantity ami quality to cause tbo 
ground to 8*'ll within a rear for three times the Amount you say you 
tun l.ny it for; ami until a tunnel baa been run Ihe entire tengUi of 
tbe uroiind. and aide drift ■* run every fitly feel from the tunnel into 
bard marble rock, I shall not lose (alto in duding good ore, as the bed [ 
rock in front of tbe lead i^ extremely rich iu iron and other minerals; 
and in some of the email veins of quarts that we have cut in the new 
drift we bare found line specimens ot black sulphurels of silver. Ac- 
cording to my notion, the pay streak, in these or any other mines, is 
not, at any depth) oontinuoufl through all the load, but rather stands 
in what is called chimneys, of greater or less size, some cropping out 
at the surface nnd others not, and all disconnected by spots between 
them ot barren mutter. The pay streak, or chimney, the Belcher Co. 
are working, was, when they first struck it, in places, less than a foot 
thick, but widened out as they went down to ten feet, when it nar- 
rowed down to a point against the west wall; but on going down a 
few feet through clay iliey struck another layer of good ore. The ore 
in the chimney they are working narrows as it goes north until it finally 
pinches out near our south line, and the streak of barren quartz which 
was followed in making the connection between them and us was at 
times leas than two feet thick. But this barren streak may run out after 
going down a short distance and good ore come in under it, which can 
only be known by opening it. At the greatest depth we worked in 
our old works the ore bad changed from black to red, which will no 
doubt at a greater depth change to ore similar to the small specimens 
found in our new drift, but whether we find good ore at the present 
level or not, I think it will be safe to buy at the price you speak of, 
as I think a rise in tbe price of all stocks may be looked for in a few 
months; and as I think it a good thing, I will take the five feet on the 
terms you propose, and as soon as you make the purchase please let 
me kuow it by telegraph. Yours respectfully, U. Woodcock.

Correspondent a In New York, LEES <fc WALLER, No. 33 Pine Street. Correspondents in London, BANK OF LONDON. 

The undersigned give notice that the above named corporation has been organized for the purpose of carrying on 
the Banking and Exchange Business, in all its branches, in this City and with the interior of this State, the neighboring 
State and Territories, and with Mexico; also with the Atlantic Cities, Europe, China, and the East Indies; for which they 
are provided with ample facilities, and in conformity with articles of association will commence operations on the 5th day 
of Jul? next, at the Banking House now occupied by Donohoe, Ralston & Co., corner of Washington and Battery streets. 

With the view of giving to the business of the corporation all the efficiency and promptitude of a private banking 
firm, together with that confidential seclusion of private business matters so generally desired, the immediate manage- 
ment of its affairs is committed exclusively to D. O. Mills and Wm. C. Ralston, as President and Cashier respectively, to 
whom, or either of them, the customers of the Bank will apply in all business matters. The regular meetings of the Board 
of Trustees will take place monthly. 

The undersigned deem it advisable to call particular attention to the following peculiarities of their organization, 
which are positively binding on all its members: 

First: Sales of its Capital Stock can be effected only after due appraisement by Stockholders selected for that 
special purpose; and the Trustees of the corporation have, in all cases, the right to become purchasers of the Stock ap- 
praised at the appraisement, for the benefit of the remaining Stockholders. This restriction is printed upon each Certifi- 
cate of Stock. 

Second: Loans cannot be made to Stockholders, except upon collaterals other than their shares in the Capital Stock 
of this Bank.

THE BANK OF CALIFORNIA 

[From tho S. F. Nkws Letter of June 18, 1S64.] 

We congratulate our readers on an announcement full of interest, 
not merely or chiefly to the commercial, but to the mining interest; we 
allude to the proximate establishment of the bank ok California, in 
part arising out of the well-known firm of Donohoe, Ralston & Co., 
and in a greater part out of an association of all our leadiug capitalists, 
whose property cannot be estimated at less than $50,000,000. Messrs. 
Ralston and Fretz are entitled to great praise for their untiring efforts 
to secure such a boon to our community, more especially at the present 
time. The paid-up capital of the new Bank is S2, 000,000, with power 
to increase. The managers are Messrs. D. 0. Mills, and Wm. C. Ralston, 
who are in themselves a guarantee for the liberal and secure conduct 
of this important institution. At a moment when an unreasonable 
panic presses heavily on all our commercial classes, and when credit, 
from exceptional causes, is unusually restricted, such a step is of incal- 
culable importance. It will give an impetus to all enterprises of merit, 
and be the pioneer of all those Bankiug Corporations which are to fol- 
low in its wake, destined to supply the real want of this metaliferous 
country — the funds to render that produce available. The appended 
certificate of incorporation was filed on Thursday, in the County 
Clerk'B office: — 

W r e, the undersigned persons, do hereby certify that we have associated ourselves 
together, and desire to form a company for the purpose of engaging iu the business of 
Banking, and we desire to incorporate the same under tho provisions of an Act of the 
Legislature of the Stale of California, entitled " An Act to provide for tho formation 
of corporations for certain purposes," approved April 14th, in the year of our Lord 
1853, and all acts amendatory thereof and supplementary thereto, and we certify 

First — That the corporate name of the Company shall be "The Bank of California." 

Second — That the objects for which the Company is formed, arc to engage in and carry 
on the business of Banking to such extent, and in all such branches as may legally bo 
done under the Constitution and laws of the State of California. 

Third — That the amount of its capital stock shall be two millions of dollars, with 
tho right to increase the Bame to five millions of dollars, and the time of its existence 
fifty years. 

Fourth— That the number of shares of which the stock shall consist shall bo twenty 
thousand, of $100 each. 

Fifth— That there shall be eleven Trustees, that is to say, D. 0. Mills, William C. 
Ralston, J. B. Thomas, Louis McLane, O. F. Gillin, Johu 0. Earl, Thomas Bell, Herman 
Michels, A. J. Pope, Wm. Norris, aod James Whitney, Jr. , who shall manage the con- 
cerns of the Company for the flrst three months. 



Sixth — That the principle place of business of tho Company is to ho located at the 
city and county of San Francisco, In the State of Califom a. 

In testimony whereof wo have hereunto set our bauds and seals this 12th day of 
May, 1864.

SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER. 



[July 2, 1864. 



ON A BROKEN SHELL OF THE CHAMBERED NAUTILUS. 

This is the ship of pearl, which pocta feign 

Sails the unshadowed main; 

Tlio venturous bark that flings 
On the sweet summer wind its purpled wings, 
In gulf enchanted, where the siren sings 

And coral reefs lie hare, 
Where the cold sea-maids rise to sun their streaming hair 
Its welis of living gauze no more unfurl, 

Wrecked is the ship of pearl! 

And every chambered cell, 
Where its dim dreaming life was wont to dwell, 
As the frail tenant shaped its growing shell, 

Before the linea revealed — 
lis irised ceiling rent, its sunless crypt unsealed! 
Year after year beheld the silent toil 

That spread bis lustrous coil; 

Still, as the spiral grew, 
He left the past year's dwelling for the new, 
Stole with soft step its sliiuing archway througn, 

Built up its idle door, 
Stretched in its last-found home, and knew the old no more. 
Thanks for the heavenly message brought by thee, 

Child Of wandering sea, 

Cast from her lap forlorn! 
From thy dead lips a clearer note is born 
Thau over Triton, blew from wreathed hornl 

While on my ear it rings, 
Through the deep caves of thought I hear a voice that sings. 
Build thee more stately, my bouII 

As the sweet seasons roll ; 

Leave thy low vaulted past; 
Lot each new temple, nobler than the last, 
Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast, 

Till thou at length art free, 
Leaving thine outgrown shell by life's unresting sea. 

The Channel Fleet. 
" Give me command of the Channel for twenty-four hours," said 

Napoleon to his admiral, "and I will dictate peace to England." But Villeneuve 
blundered, and the Channel fleet could nut be cheated or beaten ; so the little strip oT 
salt water which keeps Britain inviolate remained unattempted, and the "Army of 
England" melted back into its barracks at Paris and elsewhere. It is a satisfaction to 
find that "tho Chauncl fleet" is still as much a reality — as grim, terrible, and dreadful 
— as ever. Times have changed so much, and naval architecture everywhere has un- 
dergone such revolutions, that "old salts" have been shaking their heads and turning 
their quids disconsolately over the Subject, But it is now as it was in the days when 
tho wooden Victory and Royal Sovereign lumbered through the seas, and when the 
Saucy Arothusas flaunted the " Jack " of England aloug the French coasts. Events 
still turn upon the Channel fleet; and anxious Cabinets ask telegraphic news of it. 
Nothing is certain till foreign Governments know whether it rides at anchor or sails ; 
nothing would be very unceitain if its destination and purpose were declared. 
Europe looks still on this main body or our navy — these "Life Guards" of the ocean — 
as it looks upon the armies of other countrii*3. The Chanucl fleet is still, in the politi- 
cal world, a force which can make the scale of war kick the beam on either side. 
There it lies, riding in the Downs, a group of great ships, each with as many men 
aboard as a reasonable town holds, with as many guns as a strong fortress mounts, and 
the power of transporting this immense aggressive strength hither and thither at the 
nod of the uation and the touch of the quartermaster on the wheel. Foreign-bound 
ships steer closer in to get a glimpse of the great Channel fleet. Big vessels go by, 
diminished to cock-boats as they come under the shadow of these majestic giants, and 
the little trawlers and shrimpers let their nets dry ashore, and make a new fishery 
out of the pockets of shore-going folks who want to see " the fleet," or have friends 
who servo in it. Yet, in point of numbers, this main-guard of Britain is nothing like 
the swarm of ships which Nelson used to lead. Musi we not add, too, nothing like it 
in beauty ? for, paint and varnish the iron-clads as you will, these colossal "tin pots" 
cannot compare with the dainty, graceful frigates, and are not even so bandnome as 
the grand old wooden hulls which Troubridge, and Colliugwood, and Nelson's captains 
used to send reeling through the green sea, with a nor-nor-wesler for steam, and top- 
gallant sails and royals for engines. No! when it comes to beauty and glorious sea- 
going fitness and trim, a sailor, old or young, must fall to lamenting the ancient Chan- 
Del fleet. None of your mile-long Orlando* and mailed Warriors for him upon that 
tack; Nelson's "legs," the frigates with which he danced round the Frenchmen, 
looked like sea-birds, and swam, he will tell you, like a cross between that and flying- 
flshes. They didn't cover their yards nod canvas with smut, nor leave a long trail of 
smoke in the sky, which at half a day's sail a lubber can make out from deck, nor 
load their top-sided with six-inch iron, nor trust to the coal-hole for their speed. 
Gallant, stately, saucy flyers were they, says Jack, with a sigh; no more like the 
things we fight with now than a real wumau is like a woman in crinoline. But there 
is a beauty of use, as wall as the old sea beauty, which only survives now in the mer- 
chant navy or the pleasure craft. In the very fact that half a dozen ponderous 
vessels represent the Channel fleet of England, with a buzzing Trinculo or two to go 
errands and do tho light work of destruction — in that very fact the new ships aro 
justified. What can resist them ? Why — though it is almost heresy to say so — one of 
these armored mousters in the middle of Nelson's fleet would have undone Trafalgar, 
and played the game of a pk-siosaurus among the sprats. Look at the hull, as smooth 
and even as joiners' work fresh from the idane— solid iron all of il! six inches or 
thereabouts of rolled and hammered metal, against which you may as well blow peas 
as fire ordluary shot. Look at her beak, or what you can see of it out of water — for 
the worst of that awful weapon has a sheath of green sea. The onset nf Ptolemy '3 
great galley, with the steel rostrum and Ave banks o( oars, was the tap of a lady's fan 
compared to the frightful shipquake that will cotnl upon the craft which feels (hat 
ram, with 3.000 tons weight or gear behind it, coining in at fourteen knots! Those 
masts and spars — no more cutting them away with chain-shot, or hacking at them with 
the boarders' axes — all iron, too, with wire stays ar.d wire rigging; to bring thein 
down you must throw irou in hundredweights and burn powder in barrels. And then 
tho guns that peer out of port-holes just big enough to show their ugly muzzles. 
Our advice to admiring foreigners is not to gel at the wrong end of them. Wonderful 
treaty-makers, in the bauds of English Jack, might our new pieces prove themselves. 
The only ships like these upon tho sea belong to bis Majesty of France; but the Glolre 
and the Norn-audio, if they carry plates as thick and cannon as heavy, still lack tho 
stuff that made the difference between Villeneuvo and Nelson, and makes the differ- 
ence still. The Edgar is not the only ship in the squadron at the Downs which slill 
carries "heart ol' oak." Her consorts have it, too; but in the shape of the sall-water- 
loving, invincible race of men who will, if need be, prove in the Baltic, or any other 
waters, that the Channel fleut of England yet unmistakably keeps the sea.— London 
Daily Telegraph. 

Agricultural Distress. 

In the Agricultural districts there has lately been much distress, aris- 
ing from the inability of largo farmers to resolve the following problem: — 

If a man, having one Dairy, found that the building another was of vital consequence 
to the pecuniary interests of hie milk-trade, why ought the erection of such a house as 
aforesaid to be u matter of but minor importance? 

The answer to this is: — Because such a building as above mentioned would be, from 
td very nature, only a Second-dairy Consideration.

JE??* The following striking instance of extemporaneous Church 

discipline is given in the Cork Constitution: — On Ascension Thursday, which is a boll- 
day with the Roman Catholics, a priest, on his way to say mass, met .some ol his flock 
with carts conveying throe loads of copper from the wreck of Ihe Magpie, in the 
county Clare. He immediately jumped off his gig and collared tho first driver, strik- 
ing him in the throat with his; clenched flst,un*l fiercely- crying, "Don't you know this 
is a holiday ? Paddy, you ruffian, I have given you up as a had case long ago." The 
priest then turned to the second driver, and delivered a violent blow upon tho nose. 
This man deprecating)}* observed that he did not think u was a holiday nf obligation, 
to which the pastor replied, "D — well you knew it was." The third offender escaped 
the blow that was aimed at him by nimbly stooping and getting out of the way. He 
insisted that they should leave the carts, which were escorted by polic*, and go back 
with him to the chapel, shaking bis tlst at them, and slating that it would be a soro 
day's work for them. Two of the men obeyed the priest, and ran alter him to mass. 
To the one that remained a gentleman present said, "Paddy, I would advise you to 
summon the priest for assault." To which Paddy answered, "It would bo as much as 
my life was worth to do so; but I would do il if my passage was paid to America." 

$85- About three weeks ago a sloop bound from Stornoway to 

Howth with a cargo of dried fish, while passing down the Sound of Jura, was drawn 
into the whirlpool of Corryvreckan. The crew, on finding that sho was wholly under 
tho power of the current, the wind being light, abandoued her in the boat, and 
reached the slate islands (Easdale), whence they proceeded to Oban, on their.way back 
to Lewis. About a week afterwards a steamer while on her way to the Nortlrobserved 
a sloop, with all sail set, on shore in a small bay at Jura, at the entrance to the Gulf 
of Corryvreckan, and on her arrival at Oban reported the matter, and the crew of the 
smack, who were there waiting for tbe steamer to take them home, immediately re- 
turned to the vessel, gol her off, and proceeded on the voyage. It was said that sho 
was sucked in by tho whirlpool, and, after being thrown out, drifted with the eddy 
tide and went ashore on the spot where she was found. — Greenock Advertiser. 

$£§- So many having during the late winter fallen victims to the 

diptheria, we gladly publish the annexed recipe from a physician, who says that 
of 1,000 cases in which it has been used not a single patient lias been lost. The treat- 
ment consists in completely swabbing the back of the mouth and throat with a wash 
made thus: — Table salt, two drachms; black pepper, golden se-il, nitrate of potash, 
and alum, one dracbm each. Mix and pulverize, put iuto a teacup, which half iiil 
with boiling water, stir well, and then fill up with good vinegar. Use every half hour, 
one, two, and four hours, as recovery progresses. The patient may swallow a little at 
each lime. Apply one ounce each of spirits of turpentine, sweet oil, and aqua- 
ammonia mixed, every four hours to the whole of the throat and to the breastbone, 
keeping flannel to the part. 

&&- The San Francisco City Water Works filed a certificate on Tues- 
day last, of an increase of en pi tat stock from $1,600,000 to $2,000,000. The capital 
stock actually paid iu is $1,373.6(15 10; the debts and liaiblities, $9,750: the cash assets 
on hand, $20,664 49. Nothing is said in the certificate of an increase iu the number 
of shares, so tbe figures probably remain as before, at 3,000. The Company declared 
its first dividend on Tuesday, all its previous earnings having gone into improvements. 

^J" A correspondent of the Index makes a curious calculation as to 

the disproportion beiween the amount of shot thrown by tho Federals into Fort Sum- 
ter and tho number of Confederates killed:— "41 men killed by 3,627,990 pounds of 
metal, i. e. 88,478^ pounds, or 39}^ tons of irou to the man. Deducting the number 
killed by accidents, 34, it leaves 17 meu killed by 2,627 ,990 pounds of metal, i. t. 213,- 
411 pounds, or 95>i tons of irou to the man." 

$SS- Hoelyurtel, of the Washoe Concert, Lager Beer and Billiard 

Saloon, northeast comer of California and Montgomery streets, is a shrewd observer 
of things. He was asked the other day what ho thought of the SLock speculations now 
afloat, and replied: "They are like a cold hath — to derive any benefit from winch, it is 
necessary to be very quick in, und d — d soon oui." He was immediately fauued by 
one of his pretty waitresses.

Too sour to give the pigs."

^SIP- It is said to be satisfactorily demonstrated that every time a 
wife scolds her husband, she odds a wrinkle to her lace. It is thought the announce- 
ment of this fact will have a most salutary effect, especially as it is understood that 
every time a wile smiles on her husband, it will remove one of tbe old wrinkles!

PUBLIC SENTIMENT IS CALIFORNIA. 

The people of California brought with them originally to their new abode an irre- 
pressible repugnance to paper money and engrafted it upon their organic law. Sinee 
theu nothing has transpired to mitigate that repugnance. As regards the laboring 
classes , their opinions are fully expressed io the words of Mr. Daniel Webster, that 
"Of all the contrivances for cheating the laboring classes of mankind, none has been 
more effectual than that which deludes them with paper money."

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. 

What is said of the San Francisco News 
Lkiter by various Publications throughout 
the World: 

Polished, dignified, nod accurately faith- 
ful in its business figures. Full of life and 
spirit, and marked by tbe prevailing eleva- 
tion, inpependence, and intellectuality.— 
The Pacific. 

The ability and fearlessness of this well- 
established periodical has a strong hold 
upon an appreciative people. — London 
Times. 

Gains in pungency as it proceeds. — Punch. 

Unsurpassed by any weekly journal in 
this or any other country. — Goldkn Era. 

Wu like it hugely. — Alta.

nal and accurate contributions on tbe posi- 
tion of Washoe, Gold Hill, Reese River,

Of singular accuracy, using its pungent 
style of writing as corrective both in i>oli- 
Ucm and morals. — Galignani's Messenger. 

Supports tbe Government without being 
partisan.— Asierican Flag.

ing Europe and the South a fair show, truly 
orthodox in its principle of peace and good 
will to all men, without being devoted to the 
interest of any party, sect, or church. — 
Gleaner. 

Strangely regardless of creeds, the editor 8 
seem wholly indifferent whether they preach 
their doctrines from the cross of St. Paul's, 
London, or St. Peters' of Rome. Monitor. 

For honest fearlessness of expression, the 
News Letter of San Francisco exceeds per- 
haps the boldness of John Bright. Well 
may it term the President, "Abrabam«thc 
Ugly," for an uglier man never com batted 
the Chivalry of tbe South. — London Daily 
News. 

Miscegenation has received but little favor 
from the pens of this San Francisco brochure.

sailed with the Bbafts of ridicule, recom- 
c-ndiug that the mixed offspring of the hairy 
gorriila should by permitted to hold com- 
missions in our colored regiments. — New 
York Tbjbune. 

The above are but a few out of tbe many 
thousauds of complimentary testimonials 
and notices published by the Prees of Cali- 
fornia aud other countries. Tbe News Let- 
ter occupies a peculiar happy position; 
holding a distinguished rank among the 
press of California, its interests conflict 
with none; all its cotemporieB, while they 
look up to it with the most profound re- 
spect, watch its progress with the utmost 
affection and kindly interest, devoid of any 
party feelings of jealousy. 

The News Letter is the "Punch" of tho 
Pacific Coast, aud contains each week a 
number of illustrations from the comic 
papers of America and Europe— iVtcfc-iVaa;, 
London Punch, I\m, Mr. ilerryman, Ttie

THE EMPEROR AND EMPRESS "MA XTMILIANO," — Our Friends and Neighbors. 



Our Grand Cartoon. 

This work of art, by far the greatest of its kind, ever attempted 
upon this const., will burst like a meteor upon the astonished gaze or 
the Sau Francisco public, on Monday morning. All "personages" of 
any consequence, will find themselves portrayed to the lite, we haviDg 
had half-a-dozen artists lying in wait at the most frequented public 
places, to " take them off on the sly." In this way we have •' bagged'' 
an immense quantity of game. The Governor of the State will appear 
in a chariot drawn by two California Eagles. In the character of 
" Liberty," about to crown the Governor with a laurel wreath, the 
couuterfeit presentment of a young lady well known in San Francisco 
circles, will be recognized. The Military, the Clergy, the Bar, the 
Board of Brokers, will all be copiously " drawn upon." Of the rep- 
resentatives of tbe Press, we have no less than eight portraits. The 



Firemen have not been forgotten, and Dave Scannell has been '"jumped." 
The Water Companies, both Bensley and Spring Valley, have been 
duly honored. Beriab Brown will be seen bearing a banner inscribed 
" The Union as it was;" and the great author of the Consolidation Act, 
will be easily recognized with the motto, " The Constitution as it is." 
The Bank of California will be recognized under tbe banner in- 
scribed, " Our loyalty to Gold is unquestioned." Our Native Wines 
have also been remembered; the Orator, Poet, and Chaplain of tbe 
Day, have not been forgotten, and two of onr artists are at present 
" after" the Reader of tbe Declaration. When our Fourth of July 
Cartoon comes out, one of two things will certainly happen— either 
the people of San Francisco will be astonished, or we shall. 



0®~ Why is a window-bliDd like a briet answer ?— Because it's a 
curt 'tin.

PACIFIC MINING JOl'lINAI, 



The Town Crier's Description of the Fourth of 
July Procession. 

Oh, list while I praise, in joyous lays, 

The great and glorious day. 
When poets spout and orators blow, 
And all the city turns out for a show, 
And .ill are jolly, both high and low, 

And everything is gay. 
I5.ni.ls play, drums beat, and through tho street 

A grand procession goes; 
The Army. Navy, the Church, the Law, 
Of trades and professions a stalwart corps — 
All will turn out that day, be sure, 

And dressed in their Sunday clothes. 
Beat loud the drums, the Marshal comes; 

Bold Sheldon leads the way. 
Lo, the Governor! see him there, — 
That nice-looking man with the slimy hair, 
A-driving along in his carriage and pair 

With his nice little girl in the shay. 
Our State and Low, both merrily go, 

And swiftly the car doth move; 
Hut we arc not ashamed to confess, 
For much of our wealth Nevada we bless — 
May her share of silver never grow less — 

Thanks, Governor Nye, for your shovel 
The next in sight is General Wright — 

A true man and a brave; 
A sigh of regret none can refuse 
That so good a man we are going to lose. 
Good luck to the General: fling your old shoes 

As he sails over the wave. 
Now marching alo ;g, so bold and strong, 

Another soldier see; 
Here's General Average, whom you all know, 
Not to call him nicknames, I mean General Cazneau; 
And dressed up as fine as the best in the show — 

Fray tell me why shouldn't he be ? 
And now the Church not to leave in the lurch, 

Behold two great dig-ni-ta-ries; 
I know the sight will badly shock 
Prejudiced people in each Bishop's flock, 
To see A. and Kip thus arms interlock: 

But, sure, can't they do as they please? 
Bensley and Von Schmidt, here, don't quarrel a bit, 

But like the waters join. 
Here Pioche and Brannan we see 
Progressing along, as nice as can be. 
(When they die I just wish they'd make me legatee 

Of their small pile of coin.) 
Now meets our sight a man of might — 

All men have heard his fame — 
Brave and upright as a man should be, 
Behold the supporter of chivalry! 
There are many worse Union men than he: 

Beriah Brown is his name. 
See, here comes one, brimful of fun 

Careless of what lolks say. 
The News Letter always the truth will tell — 
Hark ! The sound of the Town Crier's bell 
Has a sterling ring, and will please you well: 

Telling the truth does pay! 
This, believe me, is the best currency — 

This paper's worth gold on its face: 
Honest and rough as old dog Jack 
It scorns on a foe to turn its back, 
And has all the wit that the other sheets lack. 

Place! Place for the News LetterI Placel 
I'm sadly afraid many in the parade 

Will the Town Crier blame for neglect; 
There are really such numbers that I'm not to blame, 
My space won't permit me to mentioo each name — 
But to leave out George Lumley would Bure be a shame, 

He's a Jobuny Bull I much respect. 
Now follow not few of good men, staunch and true, 

Our firemen, gallant and bold; 
Led un by Scannell — gallant Chief — 
They quickly fly to our relief: 
They ne'er to duty's call are deaf 

For honor's sake, not gold. 
The growers of wine have their place in the line, 

And to leave out the makers of beer, 
Is a thing that can't permitted be — 
Their turnout is a sight to see, 
And lager beer always agrees with me. 

It's a fact! Do you think it queer ? 
I most earnestly pray that all of you may 

Both happy and virtuous be; 
To accomplish this end there is but one way — 
That is, tor the Ngws Letter instantly pay ■ 



Your subscription for merely one year from to-day— 
I n'Mi.iiii yours, most truly, T. C. 

The Grand Celebration — Pantelographio Account. 

Our regular readers are aware that by that wonderful Invention, the 
Pantelogruph, we are often enabled to lay before them Intelligence of 
events a little in advance of their actual occurrence. The Pantelo- 
graphic Camera projects the shadows of coming events, and thus seizes 
them in their "possible" condition, and represents them as objective 
realities. This is easy enough to conceive, at least to persons of a 
poetical turn of mind, who can realize the truth of Tom Campbell's 
statement that, "coming events cast their shadow before." This won- 
derful institution being now in working order, we have received the 
following account of the Celebration, two and a half hours in advance 
of objective manifestation: — The Procession, under the able manage- 
ment of Grand Marshal Sheldon, was by far the most imposing ever 
witnessed in San Francisco. The military display was particularly 
fine. The route laid out by the Marshal, being a very long one 
(nearly five miles), it is not at all to be wondered at that there were 
many stragglers. After reaching Harrison street, a good many thirsty 
individuals, both civilians and soldiers, deserted tho ranks in the 
vicinity ot the saloons and corner groceries, in search of spiritual re- 
freshment. Some of these did not again appear in the ranks, though 
the greater part remained staunch and true. Arrived at the Metropoli- 
tan, the house was already densely crowded, the beauty and aristocracy 
of San Francisco being largely represented. The "literary" exercises 
being in order, the children of the Public Schools sang a patriotic 
lyric with spirit-stirring effect. Our Theologian, the Rev. Mr. Kittredge, 
then "addressed the throne of grace" in an "eloquent prayer." More 
music; and next Mr. W. H. L. Barnes read the "Declaration*' pretty 
well. Music again. Then J. F. Bowman, Esq., the "Poet of the Day," 
was introduced, and came forward to pronounce his "Ode." The 
following is a specimen of the production:— 

No more the Poet is a careless rhymer, 
Leaning with idle elbow on the grass, 

Making himself the chronicler and timer 
Of all mens faults and follies as they pass. 

But ah ! I deem the Poet's mission grander, 
Than this through daily trifles to meander. 

Think not lightly of your present Poet, 
Because ot fragile frame and statue slender; 

*Tis nature's constant plan, and ye should know it, 
Never to mighty intellects to lend a 

Gigantic form; and minds that king the Future 
Not often sport the physique of a butcher. 
This was -'Salutatory;" for the patriotic portions which followed, we 
have no space at present. After another dose of music, the Bellows 
was started, and a tempest of windy patritosm was the result. The 
Public School children covered themselves with glory. 

Horace Hawes, Esq., the Author of the Consolidation Act. 

Our artist, though he Beems to have given the likeness of Mr. Hawes 
in the cartoon with his usual faithfulness and felicity of touch, has no* 
awarded it that degree of prominence which the position and ante- 
cedents of that gentlemen would fairly justify. Mr. Hawes represents 
the County of San Mateo and the City and County of San Francisco in 
the State Senate, and holds for four years. He acknowledges fealty 
to no party but the undivided people. Last fall he set the Boys' Con- 
vention at defiance and ran "on bis own hook" against their regular 
nominee, and beat him three to one. He sticks to the Jeffersonian 
text of fitness for office — "is he honest, is he capable?" He says in re- 
ply to the Union Convention: — 

"Any teat which may, or necessarily must, exclude good and fit men from office is 
inimical to good government. &uch is the character of pledges which obligate voters 
to cast their suffrages or influence in favor of bad men under any circumstances, or 
which doee not leave them free to elect the best." 

Mr. Hawes is a reformer. He has now made his third advent. His 
first was in 1849, when he tried to bridle the Alcalde and Ayuntamiento 
and keep them within the bounds of law and reason. His efforts were 
not eotirely successful, for that illustrious body not only disposed of 
all the valuable lands of the city, raised above a million of dollars by 
taxation and spent it, but left the city in debt to the amount of $1,500,- 
000, which was fuoded in 1851. All this grand larceny was perpetrated 
in about eighteen months. Mr. Hawes, however, left his protest on 
record in numerous public documents, and kept his own hands clean. 
His second appearance on the stage, which was in 1850', happened un 
der more favurable auspices. He then represented the city in the 
Assembly, and framed the famous Consolidstion Act, which be carried 
successfully through the Legislature. That was a reform on a grand 
scale. From an official report which we have consulted it appears 
that the saving to the city and county, by that measure, has been 
$1,447,000 per annum. It was not the People's party or any other 
party which produced the reform. It was the charter, as shown by the 
figures which were published before the People's party came into 
power. The great financial reform of 185G was effected by the Con- 
solidation Bill alone, and under it San Francisco is said to be the best 
governed city in the Union. During the last session of the Legislature, 
Mr. Hawes introduced and carried through that body the "San Mateo 
Reform Bill," which put an end to thieving in that county, and reduced 
their local expenses more than two-thirds. It will soon be ascertained 
that under this act San Mateo is the best governed county in the State.

To the Mining Interests. 
Mr. J. Gaillardon. owner of the Rivot Process, has arrived by last 

steamer, and will in a few days notify the public of the place where the experiments of 
bis process will take place. IVe suppose that experiments will at onco be made in Vir- 
ginia City and San Francisco. The process consists in roasting the ores, and any combi- 
nation can bo worked cheaper than by any present known method.

The "Moss Lead' 1 of Colorado. 

We are rejoiced to state that the long-disputed question ("Levi 
Parsons, Lent, Hurst and others vs. Walton. Stowe and Allen") rela- 
tive to the interests in the celebrated " Moss " lead of Colorado, has 
been amicably compromised— our friend, Levi Parsons, confessing 
that the defendants are " the cleverest b'boys in all creation." The 
rock now commences crushing and yielding. The wonderful results 
will soon be declared in our Letter. We may as well add we have 
seen some extraordinary specimens of gold ore at N. Holland's Mer- 
chant's saloon, from the Moss mine, Colorado, assaying, as appears 
probable, $8,000 to the ton.

SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER, AND 



[July 9, 1864. 



WHAT THE BIRDS SAID. 

Tbe birds, against the April wind, 

Flew Northward, singing as they flew; 
They sang, "Tbe land wc left behind 

Has swords for corn-blades, blood for dew." 
"0 wild-birds, flying from the South, 

What saw and beard ye, gazing down ?" 
''We saw tbe mortar's upturned mouth, 

The sickened camp, the blazing town I 
Beneath the bivouac's starry lamps, 

We saw your march-worn children die; 
In shrouds of moss, in cypress swamps, 

We saw your dead uncotilned lie. 
We heard the starving prisoner's sighs; 

Aud saw, from line and trench, your song 
Follow our flight with bOme-sick eyes 

Beyond the battery's smoking guns." 
"And heard and saw ye only wrong 

And pain," 1 cried, "0 wing-worn flocks?" 
"We heard," they sang, "the Freedman's soDg, 

The crash of Slavery's broken locksl 
We saw from new, uprising States 

The Treason-nursing mischief spurned, 
As, crowdiug Freedom's ample gales, 

The long-estranged aud lost returned. 
O'er dusky faces, seamed and old, 

And bands horn-hard with unpaid toil, 
With hope in every rustling fold, 

Wc saw your star-dropl flag uncoil. 
And, Struggling up through sounds accursed, 

A grateful murmur clomb the air, 
A whisper scarcely heard at first, 

It filled the listening Heavens with prayer. 
And sweet and far, as from a star, 

Replied a voice which shall not ceaBe, 
Till, drowning all the noise of war, 

It sings the blessed songs of peacol" 
So to me, in a doubtrul day 

Of chill and slowly -greening Spring, 
Low stooping from the cloudy grey, 

Tho wild-birds sang or seemed to sing. 
They vanished in the misty air, 

The song went with them in their flight; 
But lo! they left the sunset fair, 

And in the evening there was light.

Letter from Owens River. 

Bexd City, Owens River, June 26, 1864. 

Mr. Editor. — Since my last I have visited a large portion of the mining 

country upon this side of Owens River, and traveled through the rich agricultural dis- 
tricts on the other; and I must say that, so far from diminishing the estimate I had 
previously formed of the superiority of this region as a mining and farming country, 
it has largely increased. That the mines are rich and extensive, we have the most 
abundant proofs; and anyone who has had the felicity of riding through the vast and 
fertile meadows skirting the bane of the Sierra Ncvadas opposite this, speckled as they 
are with herds of cattle, all so fat and sleek at the present season, unfailing streams of 
the purest water permeating tho valley from every cauon of the mountains, must be 
convinced of the advantages which this country possesses over other mining regiona in 
an agricultural point of view. Extensive improvements have been made upon these 
lands within the past few months. Farms have been taken up, buildings erected, and 
cropo put in, by parties who have an eye to the future importance and value of these 
lands. All danger of Indian disturbances in this quarter having been forever banished, 
tho march of improvement is bound to move onward unchecked. 

Speaking of guns, a considerable deputation of Walker's River Indians from beyond 
Aurora, well mounted, passed through here a few days since, to hold a graud pow-wow 
at Owens Lake, thirty-five miles below this — the scene of the light between the white 
settlers aud the Indians a year or so ago, when the latter were most essentially cleaned 
out. Their object in making this loog pilgrimage was to consult the deity who presides 
over that peculiar lucality, aud provides the alkali worms which fill its acrid waters 
for tho subsistence of his Digger devotees. 

With regard to mining operations in this section, matters are beginning to wear a 
more active and cheering appearance. The Union Mill, under the direction of Captain 
Eudy, the Superintendent of the Eclipse Company, has been started again, and during 
the past week has been crushing rock from the Eclipse, one of tbe richest and most 
extensive gold ledges on cither side of the mountains. The Ida Mill, a mile further up 
tbe river, having been completely renovated and refitted in the most substantial man- 
ner, under the charge of the Superintendent of the Owens River Company's works, 
Gid. Whlteman — one of the most competent and experienced engineers in the country — 
has commenced crushing the gold rock of the Santa Rila ledge, which prospects' very 
rich, and will doubtless produce telliug results. The mill of the San Carlos Company, 
three miles above this, which is progressing rapidly towards completion, will he one 
of tbe best built and coromodiously arranged concerns of the kind iu the country. No 
pains have been spared by Major Suyles, the Compauy's Superintendent here, to do the 
work thoroughly and render the establishment complete in every department. This 
mill will, as soon as it is completed, commence crushing rock from the lead of the San 
Carlos Company. Since my last, tho long looked for and anxiously expected advent of 
Oue of your prominent real estate owners and operators, who is largely interested in 
some of the best mining claims here, has taken place. "The agony is over;" John 
Center has been here and left. He came, occupied three days iu examining tbe mines 
in this rcgiou,and departed. John is a cauny old chap, and doesn't express an opiuioo 
without weighing tbo matter thoroughly, and never makes a move but with the utmost 
caution. He left here thoroughly impressed with the advantages of this region, in a 
mineral and agricultural poiutof view. As the best evidence of his faith in the mines, 
he look the necessary measures to open up aud fully develop the claims iu which ho is 
interested. 

A little more than a week since, the Government Surveying and Private Mining and 
Exploring Expedition, with a considerable train of mules, under the charge of Dr. 
Willing, the departure of whom was announced with a flourish by your city papers 
some two months since, arrived here. The head of the expedition look numerous ob- 
servations through a glass, and oracularly gave it as his opinion, that this is a great 
country. He gravely informed us that it was at his instance that George Wright hud 
been removed, and intimated other heads that he would have in the basket before his 
vengeance was satisfied. The Doctor is evidently a "big chief." The train took up the 
line of march for Arizona via the While mountains. Although parties are enguged in 
sinking upon claims in this last named district, there is nothing like the amount 
of work doing there that tbe richness and extent of the claims would warrant. 
Considerable fault is found by parties out here with Holt's recently published Map 
of tho Owens Hivor Mines, on account of the omission of the names of the claims in 
the Russ~-tho first discovered aud oldest mining district here — tho Eclipse and New 
York being the only ledges indicated iu the first edition. The Nevada, the Ida Compa- 
nv's ledge Hie Express, the Humboldt, the Comet, the O'Connor (a rich gold Lead), 
the Red, White and Blue, Birmingham, Charlemagne (which assays largely in silver), 
the General futna n, and a host of other rich lodes being omitted, like the part of 
Hamlet In the play of that name. It is to be hoped lhal the publisher will remedy 
those oversights )n a future edition. Bokax.

The Loudou Fioaucial Association iuvite subscriptions for the capital stock of tbe 
British and Californian Banking Company. This bank is established lo supply those 
facilities which the great and increasing trade of California imperatively requires. It 
is remarkable that while British capital has been seeking investment iu joint stock 
banking operations in every part of the world, California has been hitherto overlooked. 
Tins omission lias excited no little surprise on the part of tbe merchants and traders 
Of that Stale, and the establishment of th s bauk will be eagerly hailed by them. 
The following facts show how iarge a field of operations will be open to this institution. 
The yield of the gold fields is above £8,000,000 per annum, and is steadily increasing. 
Silver mines, discovered about four years ago in the new territory of Nevada, aro 
now producing £200,000 sterling per month. Great progress has been made in agricul- 
ture, and iustead of importing graiu, as the gold colnnirs of Australia do, California 
exports largely. The population of the State exceeds 500,000. exclusive of th'e Chinese 
and Indians, and is on the increase. The Great Pacific Railway for uuiting the Atlantic 
and Pacific Coasts is now under construction. When completed it will take only six 
days to convey passengers and goods from New York to San Francisco, and the latter 
place will then become an important depot for tbe trade to China, Japan, aud other 
parts of the East. For the purpose of communication, California is already brought 
by telegraph within ten days of Europe. There is a tri-mouthly steam communication 
between California aud the Eastern States and Europe, via Panama, and bi-monthly 
between San Francisco and the British Colonies to the North. The direct trade between 
England and California, and between the Colonies and California, is rapidly increasing; 
and a large proportion of the precious metals is being sent to Loudon instead of, as 
formerly, to New York. Tbe facilities for discounting commercial paper, and for de- 
posits, are at present very deficient, contrasting remarkably with those in tbe Atlantic 
States, in India, China, Australia, and other British possessions. The rate of discount 
ranges from 1 lo 2 per cent, per month, and the Exchange business is capable of great 
development. The busiuess of the bank will Include advances on shipments of gold, 
silver, and other produce of the country, the purchase of bullion, the discouut of com- 
mercial bills, advances for a limited period on available securities and merchandise, 
letters of credit, and all other usual banking operations.

SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER. 



[July 9, 1864. 



The Comstock. 

[The following letter was kindly banded us for publication, being an answer to one 
ask ng for information in regard to tbe real aspect of the mines on the Comstock Lead' 
which at this time are so alarmingly depressed in our market. Onr usual Washoe Lot" 
tor has not come to band, our Correspondent being absent at Humboldt.] 

Virgi.ma, July 1, 1804. 

Dear Sm. — Your letter, asking if there was any material change in 
the appearance of the mines that would warrant the decline which has 
lately taken place in Washoe stocks, has received my earnest attention, 
and I will try herewith to give yon a correct account of the mines. The 
Gould & Curry reached their present level fifteen months ago, and up 
to a short time since uo steps were taken to prospect the mine lower — 
which was an nnpardonable error on tbe part of the management, and 
ignorance in miniog is the only excuse which can be made. Within 
the last thirty days, in fact, the first work commenced by Mr. Bonner, 
the new Superintendent, was the sinking of four shafts upon the large 
body of ore worked on from above. For the first thirty feet the ore 
continued good, and then gave out, porphyry coming in. The shafts 
were continued to the depth of fifty feet, when they were stopped by 
water. Cross-cuts, east and west, were made. The shaft near the 
south line, and the extreme north one, in going east, struck a seven-foot 
body of good ore. The one in the north shaft also struck a fine body 
of ore, which shows an inclination to the north, being contrary to any 
ore heretofore worked. Tbe drifts from the two centre shafta have 
struck no ore, proving that tbe extent of the horse is known, as at the 
extreme ends it narrows, the width in tbe centre is not yet known. 
The Superintendent, finding that he was prevented by water, has made 
arrangements with tbe Best & Belcher Company to work through their 
shaft. This claim lies north and adjoining. Their shaft is down one 
hundred feet lower than the present level of the Gould & Curry, at 
which point ihey find the vein perfect, with streaks of rich ore running 
through it. By the use of this shaft the Gould «fc Curry will be enabled 
to prospect 100 feet deeper, and tbe appearance is very favorable for 
a large body of ore. All the work ever done was upon the southern 
400 feet of the mine, leaving 800 feet unexplored, and which this 
arrangement with the Best & Belcher will enable them to open. From 
my long residence here, and intimate connection with the Comstock 
vein, I will say that there has been more causes for a decline hereto- 
fore than is now presented. At one time I was called upon by Mr. 
Strong to look at the mine, as he was afraid he would not have ores 
enough to last another month, when, during our consultation, word 
was brought from the foreman that it had come in again rich. At 

another time a fault occurring, Mr. Strong wrote the President that the ore had given 
out, and before tbe letter could reach its destination he was enabled to contradict it by 
telegraph. At the time the shatts mentioned above went into porphyry the mine was 
visited by some of its largest holders, and their apprehensions in regard to the failure of 
tbe mine were fed by the foreman in the mine who had been disappointed in not being 
promoted to Mr. Strong's position, and thought that anything done to the mine was an 
injury to Mr. Bonner. One of the owners who was on bis first visit to tbo mine, having 
lately quit the sea, telegraphed to have his stock sold. Upon this the stock fell to 
$3,400. By recommendation of Mr. Bonner, two of the directors went in and bought all 
that was offered at $3,500. The next day another large holder threw bis stock on the 
market. Then the money lenders called in their loans, and a general panic ensued. 
The result will be that this valuable mine will be owned by foreign capitalists, and its 
wealth will build up and improve other cities, we being the losers. Tbo Comstock 
vein at this poiut is perfect — no fault appearing. The two walls are showing the name 
inclination, if anything expanding instead of converging. Aud the present trouble is, 
that where the fissure is made, a deposit of foreign matter has fallen in from either 
wall. A little reflection will prove that the wealth of the Comstock lies in its depth. 
The large bodies of rich ore fouud near the surface are an exception. Take the work- 
ings a* Gold Hill — ground which from its surface diggings was worth $3,000 per foot, 
from the Bame cause which is now affecting Qould and Curry could not at one time be 
sold for $500, and now that the wealth of the lead has been proved at a great depth 
tbe same ground is in demand at from $5,000 to $15,000. The late workings in the 
Umpire, Imperial, Yellow Jacket, etc., proves conclusively that those who sell at 
present prices are parting with a property intrinsically worth double the price offered 
in your market. Take tbe claim adjoining Gould & Curry on tbo south — the Savage — 
1 have known this claim as selling for $1,000 per foot, and after spending some $30,000 
on it sell for $30. Energetic men got hold of it, and it is now as good a mine as any on 
the lead. It hts been hampered with a lawsuit with tbe North Potosi, and the 
expenses attending it have no doubt absorbed the proceeds of tbe mine. There are none 
wlin do not denounce this suit except those interested in North Potosi or black mail 
suits of like character. Tbe mine has worked down to the third level of Gould & Curry, 
and have their main shaft down to the lowest level, and are now drifting east to get 
under the ore worked upon on their third level, which point they expect to reach in 
about 20 days. At tbe same time they are sinking on the body of ore to connect with 
the drift, which will give ventilation and prove their mine at the same time. At tbe. 
workings OU the third level this mine had 150 feet of pay ore, it having increased froml 
the second level over 50 feet; anil not nllowingany increase for the fiiurth level, they wil 
have a budy of •tk- 150 feet long, 40 feet wide and 92 feet deep. They*bave also com- 
menced a large shaft with four compartments, each*x0 feet in the clear. One will he 
used for pumping and ladder-way, and the other three for hoisting, one of which will 
always be sinking. This is a work which should be imitated by every mine on tbe load. 
This shaft is now down about 130 feet aud going on at .the rate ot three feet per day. 
Long before they can take out the ore mentioned above, this shaft will bo down 100 feet 
lower than the present workings. To look further for examples of the claims on this 
lead being purmaiiuiit, and that faults in the vein are sure to be overcome, we will take 
tbe vein at the Cbollar and Potosi. We do not have to go far back to find when both of 
those claims could have been bought for less than $100 per foot; now, both of them pre- 
sent a mass of wealth that is truly astonishing. Now the point at which these claims 
have developed this wealth, is 100 feet below the workings of G. & C. or Savage, ami at 
100 feet above, the prospect was very poor. I could take you to every mine at Gold 
Hill and show yuu whore the^e faults in the vein have occurred, and the favorable 
changes, showing conclusively that the great wealth of the Comstock has been bnt 
broached at the grass roots, and that it can he looked for richer and richer as they go 
down. 

Well, the panic has swept over us, and we are not yet recovered from it. I predict 
great and lasting good to result from it. Too little attention has been paid to minor 
matters — labor and capital have nearly absorbed the products of the mines, and the 
high tariffs have been upheld because some few mines have enriched their owners, not- 
withstanding the enormous expenses. I am glad to learn that the Companies in your 
city are now giving serious consideration to this subject— $3,50 to $7 per diem fur the 
different classes of labor about the mines is too much, and if those nowat work are too 
rich or uuwilling to work for less, they must make room for others. Let tbe Compa- 
nies import from other mining States, cheaper and better labor. To bring this nbuut 
it would be better to suspend operations for three months. The Mills must retrench, 
there in no labor about a Mill that could not be done by Chinamen, and for a greater 
part it would answer much better than white labor. Let tbe mines refuse to have 



any ores crushed at over $15 -per ton, the Mills guaranteeing 65 per cent. Another 
blessing which will follow this panic, will be that those who have been living upon the 
credit of their black mail locations and attendingsuits, will be compelled to seek honest 
employment or take to the road, as some of them no doubt have already done — for the 
late impudent robbery of the W&sboe stage coach, could only been perpetrated by those 
who have been educated in this species of impudence, through such claims as the North 
Potosi, etc. This will reduce the population of the Territory to those engaged in its 
legitimate pursuits — it will give us good juries which have heretofore been drawn from 
the street corners. The officials of our County Courts, .Sheriffs, etc., will have to depend 
ujMin their legal foes or salaries for support. House rent, by the cleaning out of rum- 
mills will be within the reach of a poor man, who upon a reduction of wages wiil find 
himself richer at the end of the month, than heretofore. Cheaper labor will develop 
the country more thoroughly, and this panic will develop reform which will put us ere 
long upon a more solid, prosperous and lasting basis, So mote it be. * * * * 

Germany Threatens England. 

(DiePrme — Vienua: Liberal, quant, lie.) 

The infamous storm of applause with which the representatives of 
the people and the press of England greeted the supposed naval victory 
of the Danes at Heligoland would furnish a fresh proof, if it were neces- 
nary, that public opinion in the British Isles is straying from all the 
sound traditions of English policy, and has lost all consciousness, not 
only of the rights of others, but of tbe interests of Great Britain. 
England requires Austria in the East, where France is her rival and 
and never will be her ally; England requires Prussia and the German 
Confederation, for on the day when the three groups of Germany come 
to an understanding to give Antwerp and Holland to French policy, 
the position of England as a naval power will receive a greater blow 
than if Scbleswig-Holstein were incorporated with Germany and Kiel 
gave shelter to a splendid German flee!. And what is it makes the 
English think themselves so sure in this respect? Is it then so impos- 
sible that tbe German Governments may one day lose all patience, and 
begin to think whether the friendship of Continental France — which in 
the end, has a secure peace to offer, — or the friendship of that insular 
England, who offers Germany nothing but insult, humiliation, and bru- 
tal haughtiness and selfishness, be most advantageous ? Whichever 
way Germany turns, she sees England allied with her enemies. In the 
Scbleswig-Holstein question she goes band in hand with Russia, Den- 
mark and Sweden; in the Italian question she fraternizes with those 
who would detach Trieste and South Tyrol from Germany; and how 
often have miserable English scribblers threatened us for weeks past 
that England would certainly make no resistance if Napoleon III. ex- 
tends the frontier of his empire at the cost of Germany ? Wherever 
a people asserts a right to insult the honor of Germany, to rob Ger- 
man territory, and trample on German rights, it is sure to meet with 
the warmest applanse and sympathy of both the high and low mob in 
England. What reason, then, bas Germany, what reason has Austria 
to have any regard for England ? In fact, it would be excusable if a 
policy were to be adopted, which, at the cost of some sacrifice even t 
would bridle this English arrogance. The Napoleonic policy only 
waits for the opportunity, which Germany offers it, to show England 
bow little weight she will henceforth ha\e in Europe. Germany will 
never forget the 9th of May. She will engrave that day on her mem- 
ory, which has carried outrage to its highest point. The English have 
now succeeded in li -hting up a flame of hatred from one end of Ger- 
many to tbe other. They would have it ;let their wish be accomplish- 
ed ! A day will come when she will settle accounts with her arrogant 
neighbors across the sea. 

A Dutch Romance. 

Several of the Paris journals relate the following story concerning 
tbe interpreter of the Japanese Embassy, now in Paris: — Frantz Bleck- 
mann was a native of Holland, but being of a roving disposition, em- 
barked on board a vessel bound for Batavia to seek his fortune. Years 
passed by, and nothing being heard of him, his friends at last con- 
cluded that some accident must have befallen him, and that he was no 
longer living. His father bad remained in Holland, but being unsuc- 
cessful in business, he came to Paris. Here his resources soon failed 
him. and on writing to a friend to solicit a small loan he received the 
following letter in reply: — "I send yon the money you ask for, and 
add to it a photographic portrait of the Japanese Embassy. You will 
remark the face of one of those strangers, lor he is the very image of 
your son." The father could not perceive the'resemblance; tbe fea- 
tures were certainly the same, but the closely-shaven head and the 
Oriental costume greatly puzzled him. He, however, went to the 
oourtyard of the hotel in which the Embassy were staying, and was so 
fortunate as to arrive just as the Japanese were passing to go out. The 
original of the portrait he at once recognized, and called out, "Is that 
you Frantz?" In a moment tbe son— for Frantz it really was— and tbe 
old man were locked in each other's arras. Tbe Ambassadors who 
witnessed the scene were greatly moved, and old Bleckmann's troubles 
were now at an end, as the son is wealthy and prosperous. 

Squarza's Symposium. 

The "Symposium" is decidedly a continental institution — a place for 

taking a kIbhr of wiue, punch, ale, or other liquid comfort, in a sociable manner, and 
not flfceording to the fcar-bamus American fflHhion of standiug up at a counter and gulp- 
ing it down with a "here's luck!" At iho Symposium the customers are generally to 
be seen seated iu groups around the tables, enjoying their wiue in a leisurely civilized 
style, and seasoning the flavor of choice liquors with pleasant chat and an occasional 
glance at the newspaper*. Here, as at the best Parisian cabarets, we can obtain a bot- 
tle of good wine, and enjoy it in the midst of pleasant surroundings. We may as well 
add that the "Frieod of Garibaldi" dispenses, at his Symposium, a sparkling wine of 
finer llavor than most of tbe imported champagucs,and much less costly. Let any In- 
dividual who is ikeptical on this point call at Squarza's, aud ask for a bottle of bis 
"Sparkling Moselle."

bill wn known to be loal that tho stock Market here, matarlailv revived. 
The attention ol tea Board, aud of outsiders, has been concentrated on a few proral- 
.u ill ol which have declined In prloe, aome of them torn, extent 
n.-v.-r oven anticipated. Onnamlssjon business, unh the exception of Barters orders, 
sad bare and loan .-. panic iimck mob. frantic to realize, baa altogether ceased. The 
ipeclmana. the mast favorable reports, fall in these days to attract. If it is 
known or supposed that .. Trustee baa Bold, the rush lo get onl at any Dgure would bo 
ludicrous, ir It were not painful to witness such Absurd abandonment of valuable 
property. Tho picture in not an inviting one. Wc ore probably assisting at the re- 
action of 623. Ami reaotlODl follow faithfully, only on tho reverse or the medal, the 

mad Impulses, tho extravagance*, the locooeiateoclos of the original fever. Not to 
dwell on ibis subject, we will proceed at once to Bach details as we have been able to 
obtain renpecting tbo mines which have monopolized the week. 

Tho fluctuations m G.,.-i i- .t Ci-kky during the past week havo been numerous and 
important. Rising from $1,600 to $1,800, and falling agaiu to the farmer poihl, at or 
about which It now remains, overy one is seeking the cause or causes of such vacillat- 
ing prices. From the minutest inquiries wc liavo made of well informed parties — ono 
oi whom bai Just left the mine, to which he was an accredited guest—it is apparent 
that Caere evicts no reuon m nil, in the appearance or prospects of the mine itself, to 
account for this sudden want Of ooofidence. During the past month, no less than 
1460,000 in bunion have reached this city from the Gould A Curry; and if we subtract 
$60,000, sufficient to pay tho late $50 dividend, tho question is, to what purpose has 
bean put Hie rather huge balance? It is further stated, that in cross-cutting from tho 
■bafts below the adit leva] (thfl deepest in the mine), in order to recover tho ledge in- 
terrupted by the horse, there was found eastward amass of ore of exceeding richness— 
in fact, such a pocket, or aggrsgate of oro, as we stated last week, usually accompanies 
these Inconvenient porphry masses. Altogether, we are of opinion, as we bavo been 
all along, that this particular panic Is without foundation, and the mine is just a9 
valuable, and more under control, while wc write, than at any previous moment since 
it was first worked. 

It surprised no .one that the Opktk declared no dividend. It is, and always was, 
difficult to obtain reliabte information as to the condition and prospects of the mine. 
No new feature' is announced, and we must be satisfied with giving tho quotation, 
which, commencing and ending for the week at $730, has varied but a few points. 

Ptnosj has sua tabled a slight fall. During the week, several feet were sold at £1,000; 
but the price today cannot be placed beyond $900. 

SavaO! has been disposed of at $1,150, but is at present weak and without demand 
at a less figure. 

CnoiLis, without much request; sells at $125. 

Noivru Poroa is tolerably steady at $53. 

North America?.- Is doubtful at $62. 

Buluo.v, so long stationary has receded to $52, r. w. 

Yellow Jacket may saefly be placed at $800. 

Lady Brtan. always an eccentric stock, has borne tho heaviest of the week's gales, 
and has actually reached the absurd quotation of $10 50. We are tired of exposing 
the Tolly of those who throw away their own property, because it suits others to mako 
such a sacrifice. AH we can say is — and that from first-rate and undeniable authority, 
just come down to this city from tho locality— tbo mine never looked so well as at tho 
present moment; aud the Trustees have much to answer for, who flood the market 
with stock, which we Imagine they intend to replace at present figures. 

It will be quite sufficient ir we append the prices of other stocks, as under:— 

Golden Age, $1650; Baltimore American, $47 50: Justis, $24; Burning Moscow, $20: 
Belcher, $1,050; Real Del Monte, $18; Utah, $30: Mclones, $14; Sbeba, $00 (asked).

Ideas About Women. 



A French book, recently published at Brussels, contains, among 

other interesting matters, a collection of aphorisms about women, takeu from the 
writings of variuus authors. We copy a few of them: — Chamfort — In the choice of a 
lover, woman considers moro how he appears in the eyes of other women than in her 
own. Love is moro pleasing than matrimony, just as romance is more pleasing than 
history. Bonqueart. — II we speak ill of the sex generally, they will nbb against us; 
if wo do the same of auy individual woman, they will agree with us. Charles Lemsle. 
Most of their faults women owe to us, whilst we are indebted to them for most of our 
better qualities. Daniel Sterne. — Most of women are endowed with such naturally 
endearing charms that even their very presence is generally beneficial. Madame De 
Stael. — Love in a woman's life is a history; in a man's an episode. Cutalina. — Only 
he who has nothing to hold from a woman, is truly sincere in her praise. Diderot. — 
There exists among women a secret tie, like that among priests of the same faith. 
They hate each other, yet protect each other's interests. Stuhl. — No woman, even 
the most intellectual, believes herself decidedly homely. The self-deception is natural, 
for there are somo most charming women without a particle of beauty. Octave 
Feuillet. — Providence has so ordered it that only two women have a true interest in 
the happiness of a man — his own mother and the toother of his children. Besides 
these two legitimate kinds of love, there is nothing between the two creatures except 
painful and idle delusions. Alphonso Carr. — Say of a womau that she is wicked, obsti- 
nate, frivolous, but add that she is beautiful, and be assured that she will ever think 
kindly of yon. Say that she is good, kind, virtuous, sensible, but very homely, and 
the will never forget you in her life. Madame De Maintenon. — lu everything that 
women write there will be thousands of faults against grammar, but also to a certainty 
always a charm never to be found in the letters of men. Duclos. — Great and rare 
heart otTeriugs are found almost exclusively among women; nearly almost all the 
happiness and most blessed moments in love are of their creation, and so also friend- 
ship, especially when it follows love. J. J. Rousseau. — Men can better philosophise 
on the human heart, hut women can read it better.

g^* The Trimly Journal, published at Weaverville, exclaims: — 

"Siiuurza! — Never heard j)f Squarza before ? — Good graciousl We have; and they who 
have tried it say Squarza gets up the best beverage ever manufactured on the Ameri- 
can Continent. Some absconding California rebel carried a bottle of Squarza's "Anli- 
Divorcc" Punch to Jeff Davis; ho drauk of it, and promised that rebel arms should be 
laid down inslanler when a case of that fluid was forthcoming. Squarza sent it, and 
the. rebellion is near its eud."

Mr. Hawes is a reformer. He has now made bis third advent. His 
first was in L849, when be tried to bridle the Alcalde and Aytmtaniiento 
and keep them within the bounds of law and reason. His efforts were 
not entirely successful, for that illustrious body not only disposed of 
all the variable lands of the city, raised above a million of dollars by 
taxation and spent it, but left the city in debt to the amount of $1,500,- 
000, which was funded in 1851. All this grand larceny was perpetrated 
in about eighteen months, Mr. Hawes, however, left his protest on 
record iu numerous public documents, and kept his own hands clean. 
His second appearance on the stage, which was in 1856, happened un 
der more favorable auspices. He then represented the city in the 
Assembly, and framed the famous Consolidation Act, which he carried 
successfully through the Legislature. That was a reform on a grand 
BOaie. From an official report which we have consulted it appears 
that the saving to the city and county, by that measure, has been 
(1,447,000 per annum. It was not the People's party or any other 
party which produced the reform. It was the charter, as shown by the 
figures which were published before the People's party came into 
power. The great financial reform of 1856 was effected by the Con- 
solidation Bill alone, and under it San Francisco is said to be the best 
governed city in the Union. During the last session of the Legislature, 
Mr. Hawes introduced and carried through that body the ''San Mateo 
Ueform Bill," which put an end to thieving in that county, and reduced 
their local expenses more than two-thirds. It will soon be ascertained 
that under this act San Mateo is the best governed county in the State.

Per Latest Underground Telegraph. 

The Emperor of Russia with bis Prime Minister went to Kissingen, 
to have an interview with the Emperor of Austria, who also had with 
him his Prime Minister. This grand conference had for its object an 
alliance with the three great Powers, including Prussia. Russia will 
join the three great German Powers, unless England and Sweden take 
Denmark under their protection — in which even France will go with 
England. When Russia goes against Denmark, then Napoleon will 
move the French army towards the borders of the Rhine. England 
will declare war against Germany, and send a fleet immediately to the 
Baltic with 75,000 men. The fleet consists of 40 men-of-war, 13 of 
which are ironclads. Beware of Russia! .... The Emperor of Mexico 
has decreed an election in his Empire. The Houses of Legislature are 
composed of a Senate named by the Emperor, and of a House of Rep- 
resentatives elected by universal suffrage for four years. The Magis- 
tracy, will be named by the Emperor for life. The public functionaries 
cannot be elected as Representatives while in office. Four-fifths of tbe 

population have made their adhesion to the Empire The next 

Pope will be a French Cardinal. Napoleon has answered in the 
affirmative that if a French Catdinal be elected he will approve of it, 
as Rome in all probability will be then completely under the protec- 
tion of France The Russian fleet under Commander Admiral 

Popoff has left the Northern Pacific Coast to salute tbe flag of the new 
Empire of Mexico At this moment a slight tremblar took place. 

Portrait of Our Original Town Crier. 

"We this week furnish the public with the portrait of " The Original 
Town Crier," whose stentorian lungs have created and built up so 
attractive a feature of the News Letter. He is as well entitled as 
Father Bellows, or Horaee Greeley, or Parson Brownlow, or Beriah 
Brown, to be ranked among the representative men of this age. He 
was born in London some twenty-five years ago, of English and Polish 
parents ; was christened in Islington church ; sold papers from the age 
of five years up to the present time, occasionally contributing to the 
" conservative loyal " press. His power of lungs and radical views 
on political subjects eminently qualify him for winning high distinc- 
tion as a " howler," in which line of business we do not hesitate to say 
that he could (if not restrained by constitutional fastidiousness and a 
natural aversion to lying) discount any of those "vituperative geniuses" 
now engaged in the occupation. His honesty and frankness also offer 
serious impediments to succss in that line ; so that he might well say 
with Iago — " I lack iniquity to win advancement." Such is tbe subject 
of this brief biographical sketch. Sine joco, tbe lad is a very honest 
lad, and when you see him the next thing to do is to purchase a copy 
of this week's Letter. 

Political Devil-Dodgers. 

The Democratic Press very truly observes: — 

"It must be apparent to every intelligent observer that there is no single class of 
persons who have contributed so largely to bring about a dissolution of the Uuiou and 
the present civil war, as the clergymen of the various Protestant denominations of 
Christians; none have done more to stir up ethic, to in If am e tbe worst passious of 
men, envy, hatred, malice and all uncharilablcness, out of which have come anarchy 
and fraternal slaughter." 

For our own part, we despise and detest Gospel-grinders of every 
denomination — idle beggars and make-believes. At the same time, it 
is but justice to remark that, in this city, the Episcopalian and Roman 
Catholic Priests have kept from inculcating hatred, malice and blood- 
shed. The Priests of the so-called Unitarians, who gas about their 
'■Savior," are insufferable. 



The Monroe Doctrine. 



Some of the Radicals have denounced us because we said this great 
American-born humbug had, at length, 'exploded. We cite them to 
the diplomacy of Mr. Seward, which virtually sustains our position in 
vindication of the News Letter's asseveration. The Washington 
cabinet has secretly arranged with Napoleon to interpose no obstacles 
to his Mexican invasion and scheme of making Maximilian Emperor, 
provided he shall not recognize the independence or do else to aid the 
Confederates. 

Notice to Mariners.— The Bpot where the Alabama went down is 
hereafter to be known as "Semmes 7 Hole." A "broth of a buoy" will 
denote the locality till it shall be properly designated on the charts. 

$83- In the London Times of May 20, we find the following remark- 
able fact, ho very dilf-rent from our American Press:— "Speaking or the Newspaper 
Press Fund, wo arc reminded of the saying of Sir Robert l'eel, that 'during the whole 
of his official career he bad never been applied to for any office, place or favor, by any 
member of the Press."' 

033- There are two mots of Mr. Thackeray's which have only just 

appeared tn print. Being told that an acquaintance of his, who was notorious for bis 
love of beer, had sailed for India he said: "fie was a good fellow. Take him for half 
and hair, we shall not look upon his like again!'' 

$83- Hairdresser's Motto— Two Heads (of hair) are better than one. 



Losses of the South. 

Editor News Letter : — I am a plain man, not long arrived in your 

gloriouB country, and very anxious to ascertain thefactsin the war now raging between 
the North and the South. For this purpose I attentively studied the daily and eve- 
ning papers published in this city, containing, as I suppose, the real truth of the mat- 
ter; and the following conclusions are forced upon one, which I respectfully Btibmit to 
you, who appoar perfectly impartial on this perplexed question. One thing at any rate 
is clear: The armies of the South are as innumerable as their resources are illimitable. 
The South loses every battle, every skirmish, every collision of every Bort; loeeB gene- 
ral officers by hundreds, all inferior ranks by the thousand, and rank and file beyond 
all calculation. The Sonth loses in prisoners and deserters. 500,000 men a month, and 
iB in a state of chronic demoralization, as well it might be, after such stupendous losses. 
Still, sir, somehow (by eome hitherto unknown law of reproduction), the South sur- 
vives; and to this hour brings up fresh hosts to be "cut to pieces and thrown back in 
disorder," (the latter clause referring apparently to the fortunate few whocollected and 
ro-arranged their own desultory fragments) — to be "surrounded and forced to yield" — 
to be '-flung across" the Potomac, the Chickahominy, tbe JamoB River, and all their 
tributaries — to be "out-generalled, out-flanked, and ont-maneuvred," to endure daily, 
in very conspicuous type, all theBe fatal disasters, and still the South survives and 
causes quite an appreciable anxiety to Generals Grant, Meade, Butler, Sherman and 
other invincible warriors, having before their eyes the curious spectacle of a nation 
'•dying, and behold they live!" "having nothing and yet possessing all things." But 
now, sir, let us go to statistics: The entire population of the South was, when the 
war broke out, about nine millions. I find by the columns of the Daily Alia and Bul- 
letin newspapers, that in the first year of the war, 967,125 Southern men wore either 
killed ontright or wholly disabled. A trifle over double of that number were severely 
wounded, while the inconvenient aggregate of 425,768 prisoners fell into Northern 
hands. This was the opening year, the least prodigal of life and limb of any in tbe 
States. Taking, as a low estimate, 200,000 men lost to the South by the first year of 
the war, and bearing in mind that every succeeding year has geometrically increased 
in sanguinary results — then, if I am to believe the leading public prints of this city, 
tbe Southern population ceased toexist — to its last infant — about a year and a half ago. 
The negroes are not understood to bo fighting under General Lee, or whoever repre- 
sents that deceased officer, and I am therefore totally at a loss to account for the largo 
bodies of (so-called) Southerners now in arms under Generals claiming the names of Lee, 
Beauregard and other of the honored dead, who, with their unfortunate ceuntrymen, 
perished months ago at some Virginian Thermopylce. Besides this, sir, there is, or was 
lately, a person residing for the most part in Richmond, Va., calling himself Jefferson 
Davis, and claiming to be President of the Sontbcrn Confederacy. But tbe real Jeffer- 
son Davis (I learn from tho B.ime sources I have already quoted) actually and in fact 
"resigned the Dictatorship," "fled from Richmond," "is understood to be dying," and 
in other ways went out of public lifo, and occasionally of life altogether, any time 
within tbe last eighteen months. Now, who is the impostor covering himself with the 
mantle of the departed EliBha? 

I would in conclusion respectfully request your assistance in tho following dilemma: 
Either tbe South iB long ago disposed of, and exists no more on earth, — and then, who 
are the people now fighting in Virginia, in Georgia, in Alabama, in Carolina, in fact, all 
over the South? — or (monstrous supposition!) the leading public prints of this place 
have been for years, and still are, in the daily practice of circulating — what shall we call 
them? — well, untruths! By me I confess this latter alternative is quite inadmissible. 
The Alta cannot surely lie systematically; the Bulletin must surely occasionally tell 
the truth ; and it only remains to wonder at the daring impostors who are usurping tbe 
name and dying the death of a brave but decreased population, whose very women and 
infants (to say nothing of their aged men) perished long months ago— nay, must have 
perished, to make up tho sum total required by the trustworthy statistics of the leading 
journals of San Francisco. Anyhow, I admit there is a difficulty. Can you enlighten 
me, sir, and explain for what purpose tho now existing war is waged, and between what 
belligerent parties? and so oblige your obedient servant. 

SAN FBA.VC18C0, July 8, 1864. ANTI-BOSH. 

Sketches of the San Francisco Press. 

Mr. Editor : — In my last I furnished you with sketches of the Bulletin 

and the Alia, with tho whole early history of which sheets I am personally familiar. 
In regard to the original founders of tho Call I am not well informed. I believe, how- 
ever, it was established by an association of printers. As conducted for Beveral years 
past it is quite as politic and unprincipled as tho Bulletin, without being so sagacious 
or elevated in its aims. It is the narrowest, hardest, and most thoroughly selfish sheet 
ever published in this city. It is exceedingly small, and has no friends and no onemiea 
aside from policy and pecuniary inferest. In fact money t not reputation, influence, 
character or position is what its conductors seem to come at. It has been reported iu 
this community, Mr. Editor, by those wincing under your fearless utterance of nnpal- 
atable truths, that the course of your paper was much influenced by considerations, 
and that the praise or censure of tho News Letter could be purchased. However it 
may be with you, such is generally believed to be the case now with tho Call, It is 
certain that the editorial praise of an actor, or singer, or writer, a tradesman's wares or 
any other commodity can bo obtained in that paper by paying for it. To be sure a star 
is affixed to tho puff, but this is a circumstance of which the masses of its readers take 
no note, and which, if observed, they do not understand. That the Call can be " seeu " 
for the purpose of obtaining its editorial advocacy on any side of any public measure, is 
pretty well understood. In point of ability it is inferior far to tbe Bulletin, but superior 
to the Alia. It is keen, smart, ready — and, in fact, possesses just the kind and amount 
of talent adapted to ita business and the class among whom it circulates. Such are the 
thrco oldest dailies of San Francisco, now in existence*. Of these the Bulletin is the 
only one that approximate to the idea of a first-class metropolitan journal. It is iu 
all respoctB the best of the three. If it is guided by policy lather than strict principle, 
we suspect that in that respect it iB much like the London Times, New York Heratd\ 
aud all the other leading dailies in the world. Horace Greeley and tho Trilntne may 
furnish an exception to this rule, as claimed by the admirers of this fanatic, but for 
one I doubt it. Successful journals are not edited now-a-days by Ignatius Loyalas or 
Don QuixoteB. 

A Couple of Orations. 

O. M. Wozencraft, M.D., delivered an oration on the Fourth; Dr. Bel- 
lows delivered one also. The contrast of ideas from the man who has 
charge of our physic, and the one who has the guiding of our souls, is 
very striking. We place the two in juxtaposition for the sake of com- 
parison: — 

WOZENCRAFT. BELLOWS. 

Onrgoddess Minerva, whenshespranginto There was a stern determination in the 
full panoplied existence out of the head of people's eye, a clench in their teeth and a

father, and by her wisdom and pacific mis- genius. If either party had dared to say

OUR ORIGINAL "TOWN CRIER." 



The Glorious Fourth. 
It is all very well for the bireliog press to praise the Celebration of 

the Fourth of July in San Francisco; but the Tows Crikr Isn't going to do so, because 
he is in iho habit of speaking tho truth, and the Celebration was a fizzle. There were 
lots of toy -tings, an there always are; and a confounded' prostitution of the glorious 
American Entign it Is, to smother tho city with smaller cotton caricatures of it. The 
procession was not a grand one, because the Firemen did not turn out in full. It is 
hardly to be expected that the Fire Companies will turn out at their own expense, for 
the purpose of amusing people who do not appreciate their cervices. A lot of toy- 
soldiers walked in the procession, but did not make a very imposing display — though 
there wore some 30 little companies. The Butchers turned out very well, aud looked 
fiercer than the soldiers. — They are all loyal tu Lincoln. At the Theatre, Bellows was 
rattier tedious in his Oration. Bowman, the Poet, read his Poem well. Some lauda- 
tory lines which referred to the late Starr King, were excellent. The school children 
sang loudly. The Ilreworks fizzed aud fizzled — the site being equal to that of an un- 
derground cellar. The designs wore stupid, consisting chiefly of mottoes, which 
never look well. What a fine design a tree of greenbacks bursting into a shower of 
gold coin would have been! Take the Celebration as a whole it was not good, and thero 
is no use in saying it was. 

Poor Bellows! 
The great Sanitarian was cruelly "martyrized on the Fourth, by the 

arrangement which consigned him to a dreary three hours' ride, with a companion 
whose head hears more than one point of resemblance to a barber's block. The con- 
versation consisted mainly of yawns on the oue side, and an entertaining resume of 
the history of the city governmeut, and the annals of the Police Court, on the other. 
The Orator, legitimately belonged in the other carriage, with our Theologian, the Poet, 
and the Header, all of whom are meu of brains aud vivacity enough to enliven such a 
dusty pilgrimage. The " President of the Day " bad no business to travel with the 
"literaries," much less to monopolize and martyrize the Sanitarian. lie should have 
been bundled in with tho " Common Council," Board of Supervisors, or other Muni- 
cipal lumber. 

At the Play. 
Amusements have been well patronized this week. "The Octoroon," 

in which Mr. Wheatleigh appears to such advantage, in the character of "Salem Scud- 
der," has been reproduced at Maguirc's. At the Academy of Music, operas have been 
produced in a style giving universal satisfaction. Paul Julicn's Concert at this house 
on Wednesday, was attended by a dense crowd of music-lovers. "Losbia, or tho Lion 
of St. Mark," has been the attraction at the Metropolitan. This theatre must speedily 
produce some real novelty. The Minstrels at the Eureka have produced some new acts, 
and have done a good business. The " Campanologians " fill Piatt's Hall nightly. 
Altogether, San Francisco was never better supplied with first-class amusements than 
at present. 

A Tremendous Libel Suit. 
R. F. Ryan, Captain of the Shields Guards, brings an action for defa- 
mation of character against the Gag, laying his damages at §10,000! Ob! Captain 
Kyau — have you really the audacity to slate that a miserable sheet like that you sue , 
baa tbo power to injure you to that amount? $10,000 for calling you a Copperhead] 
Do let a pack of poor miserable devils get their living in the way that suits them; their 
lies cannot possibly injure you, while they may, perhaps, be the means of procuring a 
crust of bread for the unfortunates connected with the concern. 



A Sensible Man. 
Secretary Chase finds he has outlived his usefulness. Let him make 

his greenbacks as pretty as he may, they will not pass for money. He finds be has 
lost his financial character, on attempting to negotiate a Dutch loan of 5100,000,000, 
and immediately throws up his office in disgust. Secretary Chase confesses honestly 
that he caunot raise the money required for next year. He gives the matter up as a 
bad job, hopiug that Mr. Lincoln will find some one smart enough to accomplish it. 
Farewell, a long farewell, to Chase — the greatest lluancler of the paper age! 



Starr King. 
Wo quote tho following alr<mg Lines, referring to tho lato T. Slarr 
King, from J. F, Bowman'i Poui th of Jul] poem , delivered «t tho Metropolitan Theatre: 
Nil man Ibf blml mob victor parting* bid

It breathe* of bopfl behind tbo dangaon.ban; 
Byibedt of doath it aootbea each purling fear, 
'Sweet aa the anthem of the iiuiv'ring slum. 



Clerical Courtesy. 
Among the invited guests at the Fourth of July Celebration, was the 

French C-ousul. He accepted the invitation, and wns prc-cul upon the singe during 
the exercises. Uudor those olroumBt&DCfiS, ordinary good-breeding should bavo re- 
mained the speakers from giving utterance to anything like an attack upon the French 
Emperor or hie Government, We regret to say, however, that it did not restrain Mr. 
Bellows from making a series of remarks, aprnpnx ol the Monroe Doctrine, that were 
not only out of place in a Fourth of July Oration, but which were a flagrant insult to 
one of tho invited guests. Aside from tho bad taste and boorish discourtesy of theso 
allusions, they were rendered ridiculous by the spirit of blunter and braggadocio 
which inspired them. Gasconade and rodomontade never went farther, even upon tho 
■tump. Tho Doctor "fell his blood boil," becauso the steamer at Acapulco bad to 
"ask French permission, before it could enter the harbor." He thought "Iho Gov- 
ernment had not acted wisely in temporizing on tho Mexican Question; aud that even 
at the n.sk of a foreign war, in addition to tho domestic One, 11 should have spoken 
out decisively at the outset, and said to Louis Napoleon. 'Hands off ocr Continent!' " 
with a vast deal more, of the same sort, equally absurd and out of place. Really, wo 
should have expected better things from the orator, who has, in addition to bis pro- 
fessional celebrity, heretofore enjoyed the reputation of a gentlemau. 

Bad Arrangement. 
Marshal Sheldon is entitled to great credit, for the manner in which 

ho discharged hia difficult and perplexing duties on the Fourth. No previous celebra- 
tion of the sort over passed off so well, upmi the whole. Still there are some things to 
iii nl fault with. It was a very bad idea to till the whole body of the house with children, 
who could not possibly appreciate, or bo interested in, the literary exercises. Tho 
front seats — in fact nearly all the seals In the dross circle aud gallery, wore occupied 
by women (not apparently of the intelligent classes), and every third one had brought 
her baby, to profit by the inspirations of patriotism. Thus it was that those who 
eould hear what was said, could not appreciate Itj white a considerable crowd of in- 
telligent- looking people on the outskirts of the audience, who would have enjoyed tho 
exercises, could only bear them by snatches and fragments. That semicircle of dam- 
sels on the stage, strung together on ten or twelve yards of ribbon, presented a su- 
premely ridiculous appearance. 



Bloodthirsty. 
Dr. Bellows has evidently mistaken his vocation. He ia animated by 

a martial spirit, which would shine in tho teuted held, while it is hidden under a bushel 
in the pulpit. He wants to light all creation. He thinks "tho Government" hasn't 
enough on band in tbo little job of "crushing the rebellion," and that it ought to get 
up a war with France, as soon as possible. The Doctor has no clerical avers iou to war; 
on the contrary, he rather likes it. He wants to havo it " last forever," rather than 
restoro "the Union as it was." He declares that if the war only kills off slavery, it 
is "worth all It cost in blood and treasure, though it involves tbo expenditure of a 
million million of dollars, and a million of livus." Really, wo think iho eloquent 
divine ought to bavo been educated as a soldier — or a butcher. 

The Noble Bellows. 
The Hind-hearted, Christian Bellows, was on the glorious Fourth 

especially devoted to blowing tho fire of love for mankind in general. Bellows blew 
loudly for the Chinaman. "Scratch a Chinaman," said Bellows, "and you find a man 
beneath. If the man be not recognized with generous couQdcnce aud true humanity, 
ho will sooner or later make you recognize him, as the negro is now forcing bis old 
master to do, at the point of the bayonet." Glorious ideal The negroes, having been 
ncratched by white men, are now scratching them in retui u — with bayonets! Let via 
scratch the Chinese — ihey want it badly enough; and who kuows but what they will 
some day come up to the scratch like the negroes. 



The Monroe Doctrine. 
The Howler is very savage on our contemporary, L* Union Franco- 

Americainc, for saying that the Monroe Doctrine is "an exploded humbug." Bui the 
Fravco-Americaine only stated au indisputable fact which everybody knows, and which 
no amount ot howling cau al all invalidate. The " Monroe Doctrine " declines that 
there shall be no Monarchical Government established on this Continent. Franco has 
established a Monarchical Government on this Contiueut. Therefore it is a fact lhat 
said doctrine is "an exploded humbug." 



Modest. 
Paul Julien asks $500 to play at a "Jlalinee Jlusicaie." A corres- 
pondent writes: — "I called on Mr. Julien to engage his services for an afternoon con- 
cert, intending to oner him $150, but he modestly told me bis price wns $500, he could 
make that every time he played. I was too polite to remind him that in iho three 
times he has performed before the public, he has lost considerably ; so that his $500 
fee is decidedly "in fuluro." 

Bad For San Francisco. 
The MacCrellish organ says that "twenty-dollar pieces" carried the 

vote in favor of the city subscription to the Pacilic Railroad; iu other words, tho good 
people of this town were "bought up." This may be so. We don't deny it; but wo 
don't think the AUa ought to make the fact so public. Since iho purification of the 
city by the Vigilauce Committee, we thought it was tbo AUa's cue to stand up lor tho 
"purity of the ballot-box." 

Reproof from, a Strange Quarter. 
The Gag recently alluded to the News Letter as a ''villainous sheet." 

Isn't that rather rich ? We might respond reproachfully "rf tu BntteJ" for while every 
other respectable journal, daily or weekly, in this town, was denouncing tbo Gag as a 
"black mail" sheet, a "llltliy sheet," etc., etc., we have said many a good word for it. 
"VillaiuouB sheet" quothal Well, well; such is human nature! The fellow whom 
everybody kicks, wants to relieve himself by kicking someone else. 

The Overland Telegraph. 
The reason that the telegraphic line is so often doicn is, that it is so 

awfully givcu to lying.

SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER, AND 



July 9, 1864.]

AT K ACT OF LAND, Embracing; an area of 400 acres, has recently been surveyed and 
plotted out into lots, which are now offered for sale on as reasonable terms as any 
ever offered by the various Homestead Associations in our city. 'Die tract is known as 
the "University Mound Survey," and derives its name from the fact that the Directors of 
the University College have selected a site of about tweuty acres in the centre of the tract 
for their College Building and Park. This property is more beautiful tbau any ever 
offered in this market, and its, location is such that it must in the natural progress of 
improvement soon be in great demand for places of residence., That this property will 
increase in value, is as certain as the future of San Francisco. 

Divestments In Real Estate, it ts well known^ have paid as largely as any other, and 
Insurance against risk of depreciation in value is secured by the sure and rapid increase 
of our population. 

Invest in Real Estate, and you And it more profitable than investing in wildcat mining 
Btock or loaning money that may be paid in depreciated currency. 

The prices tor lots in the above tract will remain uniform until after the holidays — that 
is, one-half cash and the bai lance in one year, without Interest. The title to the land is 
perfect. For further particulars apnlv to "HAKVKYS. HKUWX, No. 19 Naglces Building.

dences: Secure title; good soil for foundations and garden plots; a respectable neighbor- 
hood, thorough drainage (being 30 feet above tide) and easy access to tlie business parts ol 
the city (the cars running to them every few minutes). The lots and streets are on the 
grade. The South Park lots have 200 feet beteen the lines of houses laid out for avenues 
and a public garden, which is as fertile and. well kept as any ornamental piece 
Of ground in the city. Parties can build in any form that suits them; but on the lots front- 
ing on the Park, stores cannot be erected except by consent of a majority of the residents.

are selling at. Apply to any Real Estate Agent or to G. GORDON No. 411 Merchant St. 

Homsteads Cheaper than Proposed under the Shaffer Bill. 

UNDER the provisions of what is known as the Shatter Bill, it is proposed to sell tne 
City Title to Homestead lots forS25 to $200 each. 

The undersigned will sell homestead lots within the city limits of the city, and much 
nearer the centre of business than the lands covered by the Shaffer Bill, and places the 
party in immediate possession of the same without present trouble or prospective law 
suits, for SiO to $200 each. The Title is absolutely perfect, being a Spanish grant, finally 
confirmed and patented bv the United States. The Shatter Bill respects this title, the city 
authorities respect it, the District Courts and Supreme Court of the State, as well as the 
District Court and Supreme t'otirt of the United states respect ft— besides the title has 
been fbrever quited bv a final decree and judgment against the city— so that there is not 
even a cloud or shadow upou it Whoever purchases one of these lots will buy a lot and 
not a lawsuit. HARVEY S. BROWN.

Assay made by Kellogg, Hewston A Co. 

The mine from which the above ore was taken has turned out over $10,000 gold and 
silver, and the average yield, as worked upon the spot, has only been $6 to the ton. 
Tarney's Pan has obtained as high as $15 to the ton from tbls'ore- the difference in 
favor of Lloyd's Amalgamator being, over Varney's Pan, $63 64.2 per ton: and over the

Congdon's Mining Laws and Forms. 

[BANCROFT & CO., PUBLISHERS.] 

Perhaps it will be more to the purpose if we submit a brief analysis 

of this most opportune work, than if we indulged in vague expressions of approval. 
We have conscientiously and with much interest perused the work which stands as our 
heading, and are in a position to lay its contents, in a digested form, before the readers 
of the News Letter. 

The first sixty pages of the work are devoted exclusively to the Laws affecting Min- 
ing within the State of California, and comprehend all questions interesting to Miners 
or persons holding mining property, for themselves or in trust. They detail every 
necessary obligation from too first claim to the final dividend. They dispose of all legal 
or equitable questions between not only Miners, whether sole or corporate, but also 
between such Miners arid the Government. They supply the forms which are to guide 
Secretaries of Companies in levying assessments and subsequently in recovering their 
contributions from delinquent shareholders. They regulate the election and define the 
duties of Trustees, and lastly (towards their close.) they contribute valuable precedents 
(p. 46 et extra) for estimating and adjusting mining claims, including the items of Pos- 
session, Evidence of Title, and Customs: while a curt opinion appended to an equally 
curt act (April 4, 1S64) appear to be decisive against any and all taxation of li money 
invested in purchasing and opening raining claims" (p. 58). 

The next twenty pages contain such acts as have been passed in Nevada Territory, 
atlecting mining property. They treat of the formation of Mining Corporations, of 
their right to sue individuals, and also of their liabilities in case of improper working of 
claims as Lessees of said property. They show in what manner civil actions should he 
brought and with what restriction of time. They define the rights of working men, 
wisely point out the mode whereby mining claims shall be conveyed, and give the nec- 
essary details to be observed in case of that very common occurrence, the Petition of 
a Mining Claim. Not the least valuable, and certainly the most curious, and if we may 
nse the term, the most amusing portion of this work is comprised in the letter half of the 
yolume, and contains the mining laws which have regulated, or do now regulate Miners 
and their property in Mexico. These laws consist of Royal Ordinances of the year 1773, 
1776, and 1783, and are described as being " Koyal Ordinances for the direction, regula- 
tion and government of the important body of the Miners of New Spain (Mexico), and 
of its Royal Tribunal General." These Ordinances ara well worth an attentive study, 
as they will be found to provide minutely and with extraordinary forethought for all 
posssible contingencies ; ex: gr: The awarding the " privilege of nobility to the scien- 
tific profession of mining (p. 156;) the promise of suitable employment to the children 
ami descendants of mine owners and mine suppliers," (p. 157) and the remarkable care 
and kindness exhibited towards the working miners, (vide whole cap: 12 p: 124 — 9). On 
the secession of the Spanish colonies, the old Royal Ordinances were for the most part 
adoptod, regard being had to the modification rendered necessary by the altered form 
of Government. The decrees of Durango 1824, Chihuahua 1826, and Guanaxnato 1827, 
slightly impaired the jurisdiction of Mining tribunals; finally the decrees of President 
Comonfort, 1856, and of President Juarez, 1S61— 1663, define and extend the rights of 
Foreigners resident in Mexico with the intention of working mining claims, and thus 
the matter rests, subject to the further action of the new Emperor. 

"We cordially recommend this unpretending but really imjfcrtant ojntsculum, and 
gladly endorse the words of the preface to the third edition. The book " supplies a 
public want, and that (it is believed) it will receive the public patronage." 

Not up to Time. 

Grant has had to ask for an extension. He was to have had Rich- 
mond by the Fourth, but has not com© up to time. Perhaps he meant next Founii , aa 
he made no mention of the year. Grant's failure, in this respect, threw the Fourth of 
July Poet out of gear; he having manufactured several tremendously patriotic verses 
in celebration of the event, which A in consequence of the news not arriving, he had to 
omit. Grant is in flagrante ddictu- 

" Female Misses." 
The Alta, speaking of the Fourth of July arrangements, says: ''The 

female misses will meet at Piatt's Hall to join the Procession." Lord, Lord! what 
is San Francisco journalism com ing to ? Won't MacCrcllish send his scrivener to some 
respectable evening school for a month or so? "Female misses will meet at Piatt's 
Halll" How about the "male misses?" 



Notice to oitr Contributors. — The circulation of the News Letter 
requiring the "forms" to go to press on Friday noon, oar friends would 
greatly facilitate matters by sending in their articles on Thursdays, or 
sooner if convenient — the earlier the better for the printer. 



JZ&- The Feds are chuckling with joy at the sinking of the famous

Letter from Reese River. 

Au8TiN,'July 1 , 1864. 

The first of the emigration from the East is coming in. We notice 

many at Upper Austin who seem to have found it a pleasant and, we hope, profitable 
place for them to locate in. Many of the new comers will make Reese River their per- 
manent homes. They cannot find such inducements for industry and speedy fortunes 
further West. The total amount of Bullion shipped from this city by Wells, Fargo k 
Co., last month, was $40,776. This amount is small, but goes to prove that the few fur- 
naces already in operation are making a fine show. "When all those now building at the 
Beveral mills here are completed, the increase of Bullion will be very great. The amount 
of crude Bullion deposited at the various assay offices daily will average, for the next 
fifteen days, over 2,000 ounces. All this will come from the mills at and arouud Austin, 
those in the outer districts not yet being in operation. "When all our mills are running 
steadily, which we make no doubt they soon will be, the amount of bullion daily taken 
out will be so astonishingly large as to create a perfect furor in mill building, especially 
in the outside districts where the veins are known to be of largo size and very rich. 
The Libertad mine, at San Antonio District, has been opened finely; it has a vein 
seven feet in width and most splendid walls. A large amount of this ore has been 
packed on mules to Austin and Washington, where it has paid from four hundred to 
six hundred dollars per ton. There are no mills at San Antonio. Many such mines as 
the Libertad exist there. No such opportunity for making fortunes in mill operations 
have ever been offered as exist in San Antonio, Washington and Union Districts. We 
may also add Santa Fe, Cortez and Bunker Hill Districts, as they certainly are most 
immensely rich in silver ores. From Bunker Hill District wo got but little news for 
some days past; all we do get is of the most favorable character, and Buch mines as the 
Esmeralda, Phoenix, Brown, Jackson, Coronet, Dividend, Niagara, Baalbec Nos. 1 and 2, 
Totosi, Morning Star. Cleopatra, and Spring, are proving to be good mines. This Dis- 
trict another year will become famous both for its rich silver mines and its salubrious 
climate. Kingston, in this district, is quite a thriving place, and will soon become ono 
of much importance. To those in search of a good place to settle in and thrive with, 
Kingston offers every inducement. With a little patience a fortune is sure here to the 
industrious — none others need expect it. In Amador district work is being prosecuted 
in some mines both day and night. The mines of this district are important, but so far 
there has been a sad want of good management on the part of owners or directors. 
That useless appendage to a mine in small hills, a " tunnel " is to be seen on every side, 
some being run at great cost and at great length, where the advantage could have been 
obtained for one-tenth of the expense by sinking directly on the vein. Miners are 
scarce in Amador district, or such tunnels would not be run. The completion of fur- 
naces at certain mills will soon bring Amador district prominently before the public. 
Dull times and no money is the cry here as all over the Pacific coast. To make the 
necessary improvements, to work ores thoroughly at our mills required capital; this 
has been hard to raise; our prosperity has been much retarded In consequence. Capi- 
talists must step forward and help to put machinery into this region — it will repay 
them largely. No people more honestly deserved help from capitalists than do the 
industrious people of Reese River. A word to those who have money to invest, and I 
have done : all such are most earnestly solicited to visit this region before investing 
elsewhere. I contend and believe that on the face of God's earth there does not exist 
a better and safer chance of fortunes than hero. Some money and a little patience 
only is needed. . ____^_ *** 

Shameful Ingratitude ! 

Alas ! for the depravity of human nature I Alas ! for the ingratitude 
of man. Our good friends and fast allies, the Muscovites, have played 
us false — have gone over to the enemy — have assisted in giving the last 
finishing kick to the carcase of that rotten humbug, the Monroe Doc- 
trine ! Admiral Popoff, our guest, our favorite, our municipal pet, 
whom we dined and wined and "balled," has black-oaWed our cherished 
policy ! The Tartar ingrate, the whelp of despotism, the truckler to 
the " Dutch Napoleon," has sneaked out of our harbor, and "popped 
off " to Mexico, to salute the Imperial flag of the new Empire, and lend 
the moral support of Russia to the regime of " Maximiliano." Truly 
the great American people are "sold." Such is life ! 

A Curious Anecdote. 
When Sir Francis Carew had rebuilt his mansion at Reddington, in 

Surrey, be planted the garden with choice fruit trees. There he was visited by Queen 
Elizabeth, and Sir Hugh Piatt, in his "Gardens of Eden," tells a curious anecdote re- 
lating to one of these visits: "I conclude," says he, "with a conceit of that delicate 
knight, Sir F. Carew, who, for the better accomplishment of his royal entertainment 
of our late Queeu Elizabeth, led her Majesty to a cherry tree, whose fruit he had of 
purpose kept back from ripeniug at least one month after all cherries had taken their 
farewell of England. This secret he performed by straining a tent, or cover of can- 
vas, over the whole tree, and by wetting it now and then with a scoop, as the beat of 
the weather required; and so by withholding the sunbeams from reflecting upon the 
berries, they grew both great, and were very long before they had gotten their perfect 
color ; aod when he was assured of her Majesty's comiDg, he removed the tent, and a 
few sunny days brought them to their maturity." 

One Hundred Dollars Reward! 
This amount will be given to any person furnishing information and 

proof of the death of Georoe Newton, who sailed from Southampton, England, on the 
17th of April, 1862, on hoard the steamship La Plata, W. I. M. S., for Panama en route 
for British Columbia. The 6aid George Newton was last heard of at San Francisco, Cali- 
fornia, where ho arrived per the Orizaba on the 26tb of May, 1862. It is believed that 
he left San Francisco for Panama on board the Golden Gate, which ship was burnt at 
Bea off the Port of Manzanillo, Mexico, on the 20th of July. 1S62. Information to he 
sent to Mr. Sussex Newton, care of Messrs. Martinean & Reid, No. 2 Raymond's Build- 
ings, Gray's Inn, London, E ngland.

The Situation In Europe. 

The latest now a from Europe, wliich comes down to tho 29th of May, 
U of a character which, it it does not exollfl ulunn, is at least nnvihiuif 
bm ieaoring or NUtnfaotory. rt e have, roc umaple, the Daoo-Germu 

Conleretice, holding intermittent MSlOM— nw&tg, as ii were, at tho 

grave Question whether tbe lotegrltj of Denmark shall be absolutely 
ami ponttrelj maintained at all haaard*, of wheiher tbe UtdependeDoe 
ol a brave, Intelligent, and iuutlciisivo community shall be swallowed 
up in the BUBlatrom of German ambition. No definite line of action 
appear* to inwv 0000 marked out by the disinterested Towers. France, 
Cire.it Brltaio, Etaaala and Sweden have apparently devised no con- 
Oerted line of action. France U especially non-committal and Delphic 
in her oUeranoes. Tho ruler of Franco gives day by day more signifi- 
cant hints chat his first and main effort! will bo directed to thwart the 
policy of tbe British Government. He baa taken into his confidence 
tho very head and front of tho German movement against Denmark. 
Baron Basel Is an honored guest at the Tuilerles, and the Emperor 
and Empress are about to undertake a visit of compliment and con- 
gratulation to the vilainons old King of Prussia. Many of the reports 
point to the possibility of France carrying her poiut in the matter of a 
That is. to refer the whole question as to the future of 
Sobleawig and Ilolstein to a vote of the people of the Duchies them- 
selves. Even were this accepted by Great Britain and Denmark, how 
does it aflect the settlement of the broad European question, which 
includes the temporal power of the Fope. the release of Venetia, tbe 
liberation of Hungary, the disposition to be made of Poland, and the 
standing grievance of the Danubian Principalities? The acceptance 
of the principle of the plebiscite by the Conference opens up all these 
contingents of the broad European question. What is good for Schles- 
wig cannot be bad for the people of Italy. A popnlar vote might end 
in tho permanent attachment of the Danish Principalities to German 
imperialism. But a popular vote would also end in the dethronement 
of tho Pope from his temporal sovereignty. It would give Rome to 
Italy and to free constitutional government under Victor Emanuel. It 
would give Venice release from the ruthless grip of the Austrian 
sssasin. It would restore Protestant Hungary to her ancient independ- 
ence. It would let the Poles have yet one chance for national redemp- 
tion. Aye, and more than all, it would set half the thrones of Europe 
a tottering to their foundations, and thrust forth from their royal 
homes more than half the princes of the Continent— to make them 
dependents upon British hospitality. That is the natural issue of the 
plebiscite. Let France lay her head together with Austria and Prussia, 
to force Buch an issue upon Denmark, and Europe will be incontinently 
in arms. The British Government will no longer find it either neces- 
sary or expedient to check the purpose or determination of the Italian 
people to have Rome, to have Venice, to have perfect unity. British 
agencies and British money will be given freely to lend spirit and 
strength to the movement, and the German powers will find that, as 
they have sown, so shall they also reap. One feature of the news 
relating to the Danish question will be received everywhere among our 
countrymen with unmingled satisfaction. Lord Russell has found it 
necessary — probably at the instigation of the Queen herself— to make 
the statement in the House of Lords that her Majesty has in no manner 
interfered in this grave crisis to check or thwart the policy of her 
Ministers. The Queen, he said, bad always cheerfully followed tbe 
advice of her Cabinet. There is no doubt that her Majesty was suffer- 
ing in popular judgment from a prevalent belief that the opposite of 
this was true ; and it will be no ordinary consolation to the nation at 
large to have the formal assurance that now, as during all the long 
period of her reign, the Queen stands true to the principles of consti- 
tutional right and royal perogative which have made her reign so glo- 
riously distinguished from that of any or of all her royal predecessors. 

Lady Doctors. 
But, then, are the lady doctors to marry? and if they marry, are 

they to go on with their calling? We presume that they, and all their admirers, and 
all tho believers in the mission of women would reply that the beat thing they can do 
is to marry, if they could ouly marry tolerably well. But, after they are married, 
are they toguoo visiting and receiving patients? We can easily answer this question 
if we look at occupations in which women have been accustomed to gain their bread 
with more or less success. Au actress, au artist, a school-mistress, goes ou with uor 
trade if nhe is obliged to do so, or if the circumstances of her household give her 
abundant leasure; but if she has a family to attend to, and if she has a husband who 
provides for her, she will attend to her family, spend her husband's money, and aban- 
don her business. We may be sum that lady -doctors would do just the same. They 
would marry if they could marry with satisfaction, and then, if they could afford it, 
they wouid leave olf doctoring and stick to ordering dinners and watchiug the babies. 
The object, therefore, of a lady-doctor is to be able to leave hep profession at an early 
age; and this constitutes a profound dillerencu between her and her male rivals. She 
CUD have very luile professional ardor if she views her profession as an arrangoment 
which if things go well, she may hope soon to get rid of, while the male doctor hopes 
to go on mciuasing in knowledge, and with n deeper hold upon science, in every year 
ol" active life. But then she may not marry, or, if she marries, she may have a bus- 
baud who cannot support her. If the husband simply lives on her. as is often the 
case whoa women go on working after marriage, she can scarcely bo said to have done 
pinch good or gained much by neglecting her fuindy in order to maintain her husband 
in idleness. If her husband wishes and tries to do all he can, but is unable to provide 
for his family, she can contribute towards their maintenance. If she had not learnt 
doctoring, she would have given more of her time and attention to her family, but 
then she would have a greater poverty to struggle against. Does the family gain by 
this? Iu most canes we should imagine it might, for the care and attentiou of a 
mother bowed dowu by utter poverty is generally not worth so much as half the care 
with a good deal more money. This, then, is one gain which a woman may fairly be 
said to get by learning doctoring. In case she marries a poor hard-working man, un- 
able to support his family, she may give them such an addition of money as will coun- 
terbalauco the diminution of her personal superintendence. Or agaio, she may not 
marry at all, and she will not bo obliged to marry from want. She can wail till she 
gets the right man better than a woman who is simply banging on at homo. If she 
does not marry at all, she gains indisputably by being a doctor, for she has not only 
the means of gaining a livelihood, but also a perpetual source of interest and occupa- 
tion. — Saturday Review.

< ..i i •< •poudi uls lii New York, LEES & WALLER, No. 33 Pine Street. Correspondents In London, BANK OF LONDON. 

Tlio undersigned give notice that the above named corporation has been organized for the purpose of carrying on 
the Bunking ami Exchange Business, in all its branches, in this City and with the interior of this State, the neighboring 
State- and Territories, and with Mexico; also with the Atlantic Cities, Europe, China, and the East Indies; for which they 
are provided with ample facilities, and in conformity with articles of association will commence operations on the 5th day 
of July next, at the Banking House now occupied by Donohoe, Ralston & Co., corner of Washington and Battery streets. 

With the view of giving to the business of the corporation all the efficiency and promptitude of a private banking 
firm, together with that confidential seclusion of private businoss matters so generally desired, the immediate manage- 
ment of its affairs is committed exclusively to D. O. Mills and Win. C. Ralston, as President and Cashier respectively, to 
whom, or either of them, the customers of the Bank will apply in all business matters. The regular meetings of the Board 
of Trustees will take place monthly. 

The undersigned deem it advisable to call particular attention to the following peculiarities of their organization, 
which are positively binding on all its members: 

First: Sales of its Capital Stock can be effected only after due appraisement by Stockholders selected for that 
special purpose; and the Trustees of the corporation have, in all- cases, the right to become purchasers of the Stock ap- 
praised at the appraisement, for the benefit of the remaining Stockholders. This restriction is printed upon each Certifi- 
cate of Stock. 

Sec. mil : Loans cannot be made to Stockholders, except upon collaterals other than their shares in the Capital Stock 
of this Bank.

THE BANE OF CALIFORNIA. 

[From tho S. F. News LETTEa of June 18, ISO!.] 

We congratulate our readers on an announcement full of interest, 
not merely or ulriefly to the commercial, but to the mining interest; we 
allude to the proximate establishment of the bask of California, in 
part arising out of the well-known firm of Donohoe, Ralston & (jo., 
and in a greater part out of an association of all our leading capitalists, 
whose property cannot be estimated at less than SflO.uOO.Uuu. Messrs. 
Ralslon and Fretz are entitled to great praise for their untiring efforts 
to secure such a boon to our community, more especially at the present 
time. The paid-up capital of the new Bank is 82,000,000, with power 
to increase. The managers are Messrs. D. O. Mills, and Wm. C. Ralston, 
who are in themselves a guarantee for the liberal and secure conduct 
of this important institution. At a moment when an unreasonable 
panic presses heavily on all our commercial classes, and when credit, 
from exceptional causes, is unusually restricted, such a step is of incal- 
culable importance. It will give an impetus to all enterprises of merit, 
aud be the pioneer of all those Banking Corporations which are to fol- 
low in its wake, destined to supply the real want of this metaliferous 
country — the funds to render that produce available. The appended 
certificate of incorporation, was filed on Thursday, in the County 
Clerk's office: — 

We, tlie undersigned persons, do hereby certify that we have associated ourselves 
together, and desire to lorm a company for the purpose of engagiug in the business of 
Bankiog, and wo desire uo incorporate the same under the provisions of an Act of the 
Legislature of tho Stale of California, entitled " An Act to provide for the formation 
of corporations for certain purposes," approved April 14lh, in tne year of our Lord 
1853, and all acts amendatory thereof and supplementary thereto, and wo certify 

First — That ihe corporate name of the Company shall'be "The Bank of California." 

Second — Thai the objects for which theCorapauy is formed, are to engage in and carry 
on the business of Bankiug to such extent, and in all such branches as may legally be 
done under the Constitution and laws of the State of California. 

Third — That the amount of ils capital stock shall bo two millions of dollars, with 
the right to increase the same to five millions of dollars, aud the time of its existence 
fifty years. 

Fourlh— That the number of shares of which tho stock shall consist shall bo twenty 
thousand, of $100 each. 

Fifth— That there shall be eleven Trustees, that is to say, P. 0. Mills, William C. 
Ralston, J. B. Thomas, Louis McLaue, 0. F. Gifilu, John 0. Earl, Thomas Bell, Herman 
Micbels, A. J. Pope, Wra. Norris, and James Whitney, Jr., who shall manage tho con- 
cerns of the Company for tho first three months. 



Sixth — That the principle place of business of the Company is to ho located at the 
city and couuty of Sau Francisco, in the Stale of Califom a, . 

In testimony whereof wu have hereunto set our bauds and seals this 12lh day of

SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER, 



[July 9, 1864. 



■WAITING. 

A little longer yet, a little longer, 

Shall violets bloom tor thee and sweet birds sing, 
And the lime branches, where soft winds are blowing, 

Shall murmur the sweet promise of the Spring. 
A little longer yet, a little longer. 

Thou shaft behold the quiet of the mom, 
■While tender grasses and awakening flowers 

Send up a golden tint to greet the dawn. 
A little longer yet, a little longer, 

The tenderness of twilight shalt be thine. 
The rosy clouda that float o'er dying daylight, 

To fade till trembling stars begin to shine. 
A little longer yet, a little longer. 

Shall starry night he beautiful to thee, 
And the cold moon shall look through the blue silence, 

flooding her silver path upon the flea. 
A little longer yet, a little longer, 

Life shall he thine — life with its powor to- will, 
Life, with its strength to bear, to love, to conquer, 

Bringing its thousand joys thy heart to fill. 
A little longer still, and Heaven awaits thee, 

And fills thy spirit with a great delight, 
Then our pale joys will Beem a dream forgotten, 

Our sun a darkness and our day a night. 
A little longer, and thy heart, beloved, 

Shall beat for ever with a love divine; 
Andjoy so pure, so mighty, so eternal, 

Mo mortal knows and lives, shall then be thine. 
A little longer yet, and angel voices 

Shall sing in heavenly chant upon thine ear: 
Angels and saints await thee, and God needs thee; 

Beloved, can we bid thee linger here ? 

The Feminine Patriotism in America. 

The New York World describes the present rush of feminine patriot- 
ism in the following sensation headings, which do no more than justice 
to the enthusiastic language of the ladies: — 

"No more Foreign Goods. Formation of a Ladies' Covenant. Flora McFlimsey to 
be put in Coventry. Hon. Mrs. Shoddy iu a new Dress. No Imported Jewelry, Dia- 
monds, Silks, Opera Cloaks, Laces, or Loves of Bonnets. What is asked of the Men. 
The Ladies Demand that they shall give up Imported Wines, Liquors and Cigars. The 
Social Revolution, Ladies to drink Catnip Tea and the Men Jersey Lighlcing. French 
Boots and Paris Lapdogs to be kicked out together." 

A very large meeting was held at Washington on May 2, "composed of the wives of 
members of the Cabinet and of Senators aud Representatives, of well-known author- 
esses, women of fashion, mothers who had lost their sons, and wives who had los- 
their husbands. At this meeting an association was organized with the objectol unitt 
ing the women of the country in the earnest resolution to purchase no imported arti- 
cles of apparel where American cau possibly be substituted during the continuance of 
the war." The name of the association was declared to be "The Indies' National Cov- 
enant," and the members take a pledge, of which the following are the terms: — "For 
three years, or for the war, we pledge ourselves to each other and the country to pur- 
chase no imported articles of apparel." "A black bee wilh wings euatnelled according 
to nature," to symbolize, wo suppose, native industry, was selected as the badge of 
the Covenant, '-to be worn wilh a tricolor riband a little ia front of the ten shoulder." 
An appeal was passed to the men, earnestly requesting them to abstain from the use 
of imported articles, especially wines, liquors and cigars. An address to the ladies of 
America was prepared by ono of the ladies present, and seenin to have given universal 
satisfaction, as a "patriotic and classic production." It commences with an invocation 
"to the women of '64 to emulate the example of the Massachusetts women of '76," of 
whom "300 matrons aud twice as many blooming girls" sigued' a pledge to abstain 
from the use or tea, "the greatest luxury of the time, and the life or the New Eugland 
social gatherings." An example from the classics is adduced to strengthen this invo- 
cation: — "When the wife of a great Prince, whose husband was absent at the siege of 
Troy, was urged by her friends to put on her royal rohes and be cheerful, Bhe said to 
them, "My husband is under the walls of Troy; shall I adorn my hair while he wears 
a helmet ? Shall I dress in new robes while he carries arms? Nol my raiment shall 
be like his hard labors, and iu sadness will 1 puss the time of this mournful war!' " A 
few moral reasons are then interposed, and the address concludes with expressing a 
belief that, with the aid of science, by which "the thought that thrills our hearts may 
tremble iu lire along the telegraph, and awake kindred inspiration throughout the en- 
tire land," a work may be accomplished "so important in its results, that the woman 
who shares in it may hereafter leave the emblem of our object"' — the black bee — "as 
the richest jewel that she can leave to posterity." It was, no doubt, from this con- 
sciousness of immortality that, on the gallant iustaucc of a gentleman present, "the 
meeting delayed adjournment until photographed." 

The Mud Fish of Ceylon. 

The mode of fishing practised at Moottoo Raja-welle and other simi- 
lar swamps is very peculiar, and, as 1 have never heard it described, I conclude it is 
known to but few. The swamp of Moottoo Raja-welle is of very considerable extent, 
not less, I should say, judgiug by the eye, than three miles wide aud ten miles long. 
Its whole surface is perfectly level, except where the natives have raised embankments 
for the purpose of regulating the supply of water to their paddy crops, or for foncing 
their fields. It is covered with loug grass aud a, strong coarse sod. This is strong 
euough to bear the weight of the natives, who traverse the surface without any diffi- 
culty, and, what Is still more singular, cattle are turned out to graze upon it; but I 
suppose their acquaintance with it enables them to keep ou Ihe firmer parls of the 
surface. Beneath Ibis sod is a layer of mud of about the consistency of thick pea- 
soup, and beneath that, ai a distance of eighteen inches or two feet, is soft bog stuff — 
turf, iu fact. The whole swump is what in Irelaud would be called a "shakitig bog," 
as, by throwing oue's weight suddenly on (ho heels, the whole surface is made to 
tremolo visibly over a circle of eight or ton feet iu diameter. Iu this mud is the 
natural habitation of Ihe fish, some of whose peculiarities I have described, and they 
are so abundant in it that I do not believe that in the whole surface of the swamp, 
which is certainly uot less than thirty square miles, there is a single spot of fifty yards 
square in which a man could not catch more than enough fish to supply him with good 
and wholesome food for a day; but no European would ever suspect that so extensive 
a fishery existed beneath a place on which cattle arc seen grazing and men cutting 
grass in every direction. The mode of fishing is no less peculiar than the tishing- 
groutid. When a mail wishes to vary the diet of his family with a dish of fresh fish, 
he goes out by himself at night when the air is still, and walks about the swamp, 
listening for the peculiar sounds which the fish make when they tburst their heads up 
through interstices in the sod in order to breathe. When, the fisherman has arrived 
at a spot where those sounds are sufficiently numerous to bold out a prospect of a re- 
ward for his labor, he removes the sod from four or five circular patches, each about 
three feet in diameter, and all within a few feet of each other. He then returns home 
and comes back on the following day, bringing with him a basket to curry away the 
llsh that he catches, but unprovided with either rod, line, hook, or net. 



$&■ There are at the present time 30,000 blind men and women in 

Great Britain and Ireland, aud nearly all of them are poor. 



Special Brevities — Local and Select 
^®- Honey fresh from the comb is a clear yellow syrup, without a 

trace of solid sugar in it; but, upon straining, it gradually assumes a crystalline 
appearance, and ultimately becomes a solid mass of Bugar. It has not been suspected 
that this change was due to a photographic action, but this appears to be the case. 
M. Schiebler has enclosed houey in stoppered flasks, some of which he has kept in 
perfect darkness, whilst others have been exposed to the light. The invariable result 
has been that the sunned portion rapidly crystallises, whilst that kept in the dark re- 
mains perfectly liquid. It is thus seen why beos are so careful to work in perfect 
darkuess, and why they obscure the glass windows which are sometimes placed in 
their hives. The existence of their young depends on the liquidity of the saccharine 
food presented to them, and if light were allowed access to this, the syrup would 
gradually acquire a more or less solid consistency, and seal up the cells. 

ggt" A few weeks sinco we announced the discovery of a rich vein 

of iron ore on the estate of His Royal Highness the Priuco of Wales at Sandringham, 
which the reported discoverer, Mr. James Wright, of King's Lynn, estimated as worth 
at least a million of money. Mr. Wright has received an official intimation that His 
Royal Highness has decided not to have the ironstone worked, as it would entirely 
destroy the retirement afforded by the estate, aud for which the amount of money 
that might be realized would not be an equivalent, retirement being one of the prin- 
cipal objects sought in purchasing Sandringham. 

^SJ- A New disease, under the title of fatty degeneration of the 

blood, has beeu described by Signor Tigri, who finds that the circulating fluid 
occasionally undergoes a peculiar alteration, which results from the accumulation of a 
fatly substance io the red corpuscles. This phenomenon, which was at first observed 
only in extravasated blood, has now been detected in the fluid traversing the vessels. 
Signor Tigri is of opinion that this discovery will help to explain the nature of certain 
cases of death in which no apparent alteration of organs indispensable to life has 
been found. 

$££* A singular circumstance is reported to us on good authority. 

About two months ago, one of the villages in the province of Harpout was visited wilh 
what was at first thought to be a shower of hail, which, however, proved to be a 
farinaceous substance with all the characteristic of corn. The inhabitants have bailed 
it as the harbinger of a tine harvest, aud the price of corn has actually declined in the 
district from 125 to 85 piastres the kilogramme. Samples of this curious gram have 
been received at the Porte. — Levant Herald. 

7&F* In accordance with instructions received from the "War-office, in 

England, reccommendiug the employment of soldiers iu cultivating gardens in which 
vegetables maybe grown for their own consumption, the military authorities at 
Colchester have granted a piece of land, Dine acres in extent, to the three depot 
battalions at the camp, each battalion taking three acres. The land selected is situated 
near the new infant school at Monkwich, and is to be fenced and cultivated at the sole 
expense of the troops under certain conditions expressed io the War-ofiice letter. 

ggF" Professor Jellett has communicated to the Chemical News some 

experiments which have lead him to infer the identity of Aconella and Narcotine. 
The experiments consisted in submitting similar solutions to the action oT polarized 
light, and measuring their rotatory powera before and after the addition of hydro- 
chloric acid. 

^E©"* Renan is preparing a people's edition of his "Etudes d'Histoirie 

religieuse," the work which first founded his reputation, and which treats of the 
ancient creeds, the history of the Jewish nation, the critical historians of the "Origin 
of Christianity ," etc. M. Renan here also lakes an opportunity of vindicating his own 
purely scientific "standpoint" as one totally independent of theology. 

fi&- An enterprise has lately been set on foot in France for the 

manufacture of guano from fishes. The refuso from fisheries has been for some time 
pasl employed iu this manner; but it is now proposed to organize fisheries for the pur- 
pose of manufacturing the article, which possesses several advantages, decomposing 
neither too quickly nor two slowly, and exhaling no ammonia. 

figf The leaves of geraniums ore an excellent application for cuts, 

where the skin is rubbed olt, and other wounds of the kind. One or two leaves must 
be bruised, and applied on lin<m to the part, and iho wound will become cicatrised in a 
very short time. 

$£§- The copyright of the whole of "Washington Irving's works has 

realized the sum of £42,000. Of this vast amount — vast for literary labor— £30,000 
was paid during the lifetime of the author; tho remaining £12,000 has just been paid 
over to his trustees. 

J^* It is worth remarking that the most strenuous endeavors are 

being made to construct the cupOia ships wilh all speed which are being built in our 
dockyards. The men work night and day, as if there were the most pressing need of 
vessels. 

#&■ The Richmond Illustrated Nexcs announces the name of John 

Milchel in the list of contributors, and says that "the style of this distinguished 
scholar ia by turns 'raspiugly' critical, passionately enthuastic, exquisitely droll, and 
metaphysically profound." 

J^~ In the year 1853 the French coal mines produced 5,000,000

tons, of tho value of 117,500,000 francs, which is only a little more than one-eight of 
the produce of the English coal mines.

Down on Fourth of July Celebrations. 

An eminent ecclesiastical dignitary of this city, as celebrated for his 
aristocratic tastes as for his exalted talents— perhaps more so— has 
come to the conclusion that Fourth of July Celebrations are "vulgar 
affairs.'' He is satisfied that "they wouldn't manage matters in that 
coarse way in England, or upon the Continent." and wouldn't permit 
"pulpit demagogues" to be the great guns of the occasion. And then 
the procession "was half made up of firemen and butchers— faugh !" 
We regard this opinion as eminently sound. What other view of the 
matter could we expect from such a source? But, aside from the 
coarseness of the affair, it had a decidedly heterodox aspect._ A heretic 
delivered the Oration last year, and another this year— Deists or Pan- 
theists both. Why couldn't some of the great guns of "the Church" 
have been selected— some of those "powerful" preachers whose electric 
eloquence draws Buch throngs to the Cathedral ? Why not ? 

pg" We have been found fault with for using the word "gangrene" 
in connection with the Government currency. Such criticism arises 
from ignorance. Gangrene signifies the last stage of mortification; and 
when it attacks the spinal column it becomes simply a green lack. 

%&- Nothing more clearly proves the Confederate proclivities of the 
New York monied men, than the late fluctuations in the price of gold. 
The nearer Grant got to Richmond, the higher went gold; and now, 
the nearer the Rebels approach Washington, the more it falls. 

103" By the last Overland Mail, we received from London some thin 
stereotype plates of the latest illustrations published in Punch, one of 
which we give in to-day's issue. 



SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER, AND 



[July 16, 1864. 



A New Power in Mining — The Gun Cotton Problem Solved. 

Gun cotton, a few years ago, seemed to have been "finally shelved." 

The great things predicted of it had, unfortunately, never been compassed outside a 
chemical laboratory; it came to be admitted, in fact, tbat the "spontaneous Ignition" 
difficulty had posed the ingenuity ol the most practical minds, and people begau at last 
to suspect that we had all along been ''pirating the patent" of some "well-meaning" 
citizen of Utopia. One man, however, kept steadily at work. Von Link, an officer in 
the Austrian service — inspired apparently by a lingering suspicion tbat pure gun cotton 
had never been produced — resolved, some six or e'gbt years ago, to attempt the practical 
solution of the matter, by a lengthened scries of experiments. He persevered ; and it 
is a resume (now lying before us) of the new and valuable results lately communi- 
cated by him to his Government, that has tempted us to string together thene re- 
marks. Let us trace llrst, the history of this remarkable body up to the time Von 
Link entered the field. Its discovery is generally attributed to Schoubein, in 1846; 
but, as with most other investigate inventions, accurate chronological research has 
brought to light a wonderful substructure of facts existing before it. As far back as 
1832, Robiquet produced an inflamable powder by drying the product formed on adding 
water to a nitric acid decoction of sawdust ; and the following year Bi'aconnct, in the 
Annales de Chinie y published an account of xyloidine, "a new substance," which he 
had obtained by acting upou starch, sawdust, linen, and cotton wool, (the bases of 
which are isomeric.) with strong boiling acid, pouring the resultant liquid into water, 
and collecting and drying the precipitate formed. The body thus procured, be de- 
scribed an "white, pulverulent, neutral, and very inflamable" — exploding, in fret, by 
a smart blow with a hammer. The attention of the French Academy was called to 
the merits of this substance by Pelonze, in the Comptes Rendta for 1838, in which be 
speaks of it as "very combustible, taking fire at 356° fahr. , burning with great 
rapidity and almost without residue. This property," he goes on*to say, "has led 
me to an experiment which I think susceptible of some applications, especially in 
artillery. By plunging paper into nitric acid of sp. qr. 1.5, leaving it there the re- 
quisite time for the acid to permeate, which is usually accomplished in two or three 
minutes, then withdrawing it, and lastly washing it in water, we obtain a kind of 
parchment, impermeable to moisture and extremely combustible " The use of paper 
and pasteboard — prepared in this way — for fireworks, was afterwards noticed by 
Dumas (who proposed for it the name of nitramidinc) in the sixth volume of his 
"Applied Chemistry,'- published at Paris in 1843 The next step was that of Schon- 
beiu, in 1846, at the British Association meeting, for which year it was announced 
that he "had discovered a mode of rendering cotton so explosive as to form an ex- 
cellent substitute for gunpowder. Specimens of the prepared cotton were exhibited 
at the meeting, but the method of preparation was kept a secret, as the inventor was 
theu applying for a patent. Soon after the announcement, however, Professor Otto, 
of Brunswick, published an account of an explosive cotton, as did also M. Morel, of 
Paris, and M. Bottger, of Frankfort.'" In April, 1847, Schonbein's patent was en- 
rolled; and the process, as described in the specification, was Been to be not a littlo 
complicate, involving as many as a dozen distinct operations. The cotton was to be 
immersed in a mixture of nitric and sulphuric acids, squeezed, allowed to stand, 
washed in water, then in an alkaline bath, pressed again, dipped in a solution of salt- 
petre, once more pressed, and finally dried in a hot water stove. Six mouths after 
this, a far simpler mode was proposed by Mr. Thomas Taylor — the process is the one 
still used in the chemical laboratory; and until the modus operandi of Von Link has 
been published iu detail, probably no better method could be given: "Mix, in any 
convenient glass vessel, an ouuee aud a half, by measure, of nitric acid, sp. gr. 1.50, 
with an equal quantity of sulphuric, sp. gr. 1 84. When cool, pour the mixture over 
100 grains of flue cotton, placed in a wedgwood mortar, and with a glass rod rapidly 
imbue the cotton with the acid. As soon as it is completely saturated, pour off the 
acid, and, with the aid of a pestle, quickly squeeze out as much more of it as possible. 
Place the mass beueath a tap of running water, and wash until the cotton has not the 
slightest acid taste. Finally, squeeze it in a linen cloth, and dry it in a water bath." 
The sulphuric acid, it should be observed, takes no part in the decomposition in cither 
of these processes ; its sole object is to abstract the moisture from the cotton, aud thus 
facilitate the action of the nitric acid. Gun cotton, as thus prepared, was found to pos- 
sess the following remarkable properties: Although scarcely difl'eriug in appearance 
from the natural fibre, it is hard to the touch, crepitating audibly between the fingers, 
and is fully 70 per cent- heavier than ordinary rotton. It is an excellent insulator of 
electricity, and is very highly excitable — for, if a portion be pulled briskly between the 
finger and thumb of a dry hand, the fibres will adhere to them with great tenacity; and 
when a strip of prepared paper is thns treated, and one end presented to the knuckle, 
it is alternately attracted and repelled till it has parted with the whole of its charge. — 
In its action on light, it differs decidedly from ordinary cotton, for "when examined by 
the microscope in a ray of polarized (double refracted) light, it is found to have lost the 
property of depolarization which ordinary cotton possesses." It is also much more hy- 
groscopic than unchanged cottou. absorbing, when exposed for an hour or two to a 
damp atmosphere, nearly its owu weight in water — a quality greatly detrimental to its 
use. One physical property — its fibrous form — in, however, decidedly in its favor; 
for, unlike guupowder, it spills no daugerous "train" upon the ground when carried in 
leaky vessels; aud can also be driven with far greater ease into an overhead boring in 
a drift. Auoth«r point, and, though of solid importance, one we have never seen 
noticed before, iR the fact that, as it explodes without smoke, "strings," "threads," 
"droppers" aud "feeders," intersected by a tunnel, can never be " soaked over;" 
they must be more distinctly visible in fact than when exposed by the cuttings of a 
pick — and if a lode has been "nipped," "heaved, "thrown," — cut in any way by a 
slide, cross course, or contra lode — or has "taken" (that friend of juvenile super- 
intendents) a "horse," no mining captain visiting his levels need trouble his men 
with questions, lor the walls of the drift around him will best tell the story; and. as 
with the captain afloat, every fact being perfectly patent, he can come to a decision 
at once. Uun cottou cannot, with impunity, be adulterated with the natural fibre, 
as it never yields the blue with iodine and sulphuric acid, that is characteristic of 
the latter. Bechamp found, however, singularly enough, that it can be cbniiged 
back to ordinary cotton by simple digestion in proto-chloride of iron. Gun cottou is 
soluble In ether, producing the well-known collodion of the surgeon and photographer. 
When this liquid is poured into water, the ether evaporates and leaves an opaque film 
floating on the surface, which, when collected and dried, forms a very explosive 
paper — identical, in fact, with the xyloidine originally described by Braconnet. Tuo 
most remarkable property of gun cotton is, of course, the facility with which it takes 
Are, and the rapid and complete manner of its combustion. The whole is resolved 
into watery vapor, nitrogen and carbonic acid gas— the initial explosive force being 
considered due, mainly, to the formation of an enormous volume of red hot strain. 
In the open air it burns with a flash, but without either smoke or report. A tempera- 
ture of 300° fahr.— nearly MO* less thau that 'required for gunpowder— is sufficient to 
Inflame it; and a small wisp of it, in fact, may be ignited iu the open hand without 
any injury. "If a little gunpowder be placed on a sheet of writing paper, aud a s nail 
piece of gun cottou be laid lightly upon it, and the whole held about a foot above the 
flami* or a lamp or caudle, the heat will soon be sufficient to ignite the cotton, but the 
powder will not be kiudled; and although the cotton explodes in immediate contact 
with it, the action is so rapid that there is not lime enough to raise the gunpowder to 
the temperature necessary for its explosion." This same rapidity or action has been 
one great objection to its practical utilization, for — like the once lauded fulminates of 
mercury and silver— ir applied to the purposes of artillery, it generally burst the gun 
before it had lime to move the shot; and iu the case of blasts, the rock was not shaken 
by it at a distance rroni tbe charge. Another grand objection was the liability to 
spontaneous ignition, numerous accidents having occurred within a very few years. 
[To be crmtimted.] 
$&~ The Trinity Journal, published at Weaverville, exclaims: — 
"Squarza I— Never heard of Squarza before?— Good graciousl We have; and they who 
have tried it say Squarza gets up the heat beverage ever manufactured on the Ameri- 
can Continent. Some absconding California rebel carried a bottle of Squarza'e "Anti- 
Divorce" Punch to Jeff Davis; he drank of it, and promised that rebel arms should be 
laid down instanter when a case of that fluid was forthcoming. Squarza sent it, and 
the rebellion js near its eud."

The London Financial Association invito subscriptions for the capital stock of the 
British and Californian Banking Company. This hank is established to supply those 
facilities which the great and increasing trade of California imperatively requires. It 
is remarkable that while British capital has been seeking investment in joint stock 
banking operations in every part of the world, California has been hitherto overlooked. 
This omission has excited no little surprise ou tbe part of the merchants and traders 
of that State, and the establishment of ths bank will be eagerly hailed by them. 
The following facts shosv how iarge a Held of operations will be open to this institution. 
Tbe yield of the gold fields is above £8,000,000 per annum, and is steadily increasing. 
Silver mines, discovered about four years ago in the new territory of Nevada, are 
now producing £200,000 sterling per month. Great progress has been made in agricul- 
ture, and instead of importing graiu,as the gold colonics of Australia do, California 
exports largely. The population of the State exceeds 500,000. exclusive of the Chinese 
and Indians, and is on the increase. The Great Pacific Railway for uniting the Atlantic 
and Pacific Coasts is now under construction. When completed it will take only sis 
days to convey passengers and goods from New York to San Francisco, and the latter 
place will then become an important depot for tbe trade to China, Japan, and other 
parts of the East. For the purpose of communication, California is already brought 
"by telegraph within ten days of Europe. There is a tri-monthly steam communication 
between California and the Eastern States and Europe, via Pauama, and bi-monthly 
between San Franciscoaud the British Colonies to the North. The direct trade between 
England and California, and between the Colonies and California, is rapidly increasing; 
and a large proportion of the precious metals is being sent to London instead of, as 
formerly, to New York. The facilities for discounting commercial paper, and for de- 
posits, are at present very deficient, contrasting remarkably with those in the Atlantic 
States, in India, China, Australia, and other British possessions. Tbe rate of discount 
ranges from 1 to 2 per cent, per month, and tbe Exchange business is capable of great 
development. The business of the bank will include advances ou shipments of gold, 
silver, and othor produce of the country, the purchase of bullion, tbe discount of com- 
mercial bills, advances for a limited period on available securities and merchandise, 
letters of credit, aud all other usual bauking operations.

An Interesting Incident. 

The Realm describes a singular scene. Some 
cottoQ bas lately been imported into Farring- 
don, wbere the mills have been closed for a 
considerable time. ■ The people, who were pre- 
viously in the deepest distress, went out to 
meet the cotton, the women wept over the 
bales and kissed them, and finally sang the 
doxology over the welcome importation. Im- 
agine cotton becoming poetical, and people 
spontaneously raising a Te Deum because 
asked once more to toil ! If that incident is 
true as it stands, it would make a better inci- 
dent for the painter than half the worn out in- 
cidents of dramatic story. 



A Life Saved by Music. 

Mnsic, it seems, has still the charms the poet 
ascribed to it. Mr. Cox, son of an English 
physician of Valparaiso, had been exploring 
on almost unknown inland sea in Chili and the 
river Liinay, when the party fell into the hands 
of a tribe of wild Indians. The Cacique 
wantedto kill him for visiting his dominions 
without permission; but Mr. Cox played him a 
tune on the flageolet, and the chief relented 
and let him go. Surely that Cacique must be 
an Austrian in an inchoate state, with tenden- 
cies which will ultimately develop into a pass- 
port system and a love for opera. Admiral 
Fitzvoy, we perceive, thinks there is something 
in these regions more valuable than Caciques, 
namely, three new varieties of the potato. 

Representative Men. 

The "slasher" of the Flag accuses Hittell of 
the Alta of being "an infidel," and by impli 
cation claims to be a "Christian" himself. If 
we were to take the two as "Representative 
Men" of the respective classes, we should have 
to conclude that "infidels" were estimable 
gentlemen and respectaple citizens, whilo 
"Christians" were filthy blackguards and ma- 
lignant slanderers. The "infidel" has borne a 
good character and been a useful member of 
society. The "Christian" is a social pest, who 
can only draw his breath in an atmosphere of 
vilification; an outlaw and outcast from human 
fellowship, and a terrible libel upon human 
nature. 



D d Revolting! 

The Evening Bulletin aays:— "Of the treasure 
shipped by the tit. Louis yesterday, the sum of 
$500,000 was forwarded by Snb-Treasnrer 
Cheesman to England, on account of the Unih 
ed'States, and had the same destination as the 
$"1,000,000 which was forwarded on Govern- 
ment account some time ago." Why on earth 
does Cheeseman send this money to the infer- 
nal Britishers who do not sympathize with us 
in our afflictions, and not to the Russians, who 
"sincerely sympathize with us?" We daily 
lose faith in the patriotism of "pur people." 



MY BUTLER 
A Tale of Pride and Punishment. 

P.UiT I. — PRIDE. 

Now if there be, as I believe, 

Foul spirits in tbr_- air, 
"Who grin to see us mortals grievo, 

And dance at our despair, 
They must have had a special treat, 
And shrieked with prescient ran, 
WIkti, in a somewhat obaeure street, 

I sought fur Mrs. Grun- 
dy's olfiee, where, my Paper said, 

I could not fuil to find 
Servants, in every virtue bred, 

Both male and womankiud. 
And when "come in" my rat-tat-tat 

Evoked at 73, 
There in a pleasant parlor sat 

Dame Grundy at her ten. 
Ah, never, since, in days long flod, 

My boyhood did perspire, 
Applying surreptitious bread 

To unpermitted fire, — 
Never such toasts my wilful eyes 

Had lit with hunger's glow, 
And, in my gladness and surprise, 

I told Dame Grundy so! 
"Might she presume V "Oh, surely, yes, 

Nor formal words begin ; 
One sniff of buttered toast like this 

Doth make the whole world kiu." 
She poiuted to a cushioned chair, 

And from her mantel-shelf 
She took, and wiped with dainty care 

A cup of shining delf. 
There, in a cozy corner snug, 

I gave myself to tea. 
Till, liko the cat upou her rug, 

I purred with pletho-ry. 
And then to business — first we had 

A plaint of dole and woe, 
Of servants going to the bad 

As fast as they could go. 
So change,!, so lapsed to foul disgrace 

Since that more virtuous age, 
TVhen no one over left their place, 

And rather likod low wage. 
We spoke of butlers who had passed 

Their lives in one pan-try, 
And left their little all ut last 

To the Infirnia-ry. 
Of cooks, high-principled, whom gay 

Butchers could ne'er allure; 
"Who weighed each joint, and gave away 

Their dripping to the poor. 
Cooks, who ne'er scowled with Btillen ire, 

"When trieuds to dine dropped in, 
But smileil, then" "faces all afire 

With labor," not with gin. 
Of happy housemaids, passing fair, 

But as cold Dian chaste, 
Who nor by lads nor laces were 

Compressed about the waist. 
No charm from Nature's lovely lines 

They ever sought to rob; 
Nor added to what she defines, 

Save that sweet cap, called "Mob." 
And then from those pure halcyon days 

In which Dame Grundy served, 
To modern servants' wicked ways 

Our conversation Bwerved. 
I spoke of JLadies-maid3 I'd met 

On other peoples' stairs, 
And bowed to them as of "our set," 

They gave themselves such airs. 
I quoted "Punch:" — what pencil could 

On '•FUinkeyana" preach — 
Sermons in stones, or rather wood, 

Like thine, delicious Leech! 
But when I asked, "Was Virtue dead, 

And whether Grundy knew 
Of any honest folk?" she said, 

"Well yes, there was a few. 
"There was a few, and though, perhaps, 

She didn't ought to say. 
And meant no nasty sneers nor snaps 

At Smith'* across the way — 
"But fax was fax, which scorn she should 

A gentleman deceive 
And, asking parding, hoped I would 

A whhly's word believe, 
"That of all servants, most ronownod 

For conduct and good looks. 
The names itlitl ages would be found 

In Martha Grundy's bookB." 
What joyous news! "iny tongue, inspired 

By trustfulness and tea, 
"Could she then find," at once inquired, 

"A butler fit for me?" 
"Fast, would I kindly please to state 

What wages there was guv? 
For" (with u smile, said Grundy's mate) 

"The best won't sarve for luv." 
A transitory smile, for when 

Of -'Forty Pounds" I spake, 
Her lineaments relapsed, and then 

She gave them all a shake. 
"Nothink fust-rate," she pitying, sighed, 

"Which well bekuown it is. 
Could at that figure be supplied, 

.V" salaries was riz." 



"She did know one, perhaps I might 

At fifty pounds engage, 
A tip-top mau, a treasure quite, 

She'd knowed him from a page. 
"Knowed him as footman, valet, in 

The bust of ftuni-lies; 
An under-butler last he'd bin, 

Right Hon. the Earl of G.'s." 
Ah, woefraoght words ! for one of those 

Grim sprits in the air, 
Who love to gaze upon our throoa, 

And dance at our uespair, 
Heard them, and stooped with fiendish hate, 

To whisper in mine ear; 
"You'd like to have a man to wait,

A Heartless Lovelace. 

Talking of Lovelaces, there was a rather 
amusing story of my old friend, Dan M'Kiuuon, 
of the Guards. He was very good-looking, and 
a great favorite with the fair sex; and, at the 
time of which I speak, many, many years ago, 
he was loved by a Miss C— — ; and ill-natured 
people say that tbey "loved not wisely, but 
too well." Unfortunately, people do not fall 
simultaneously out of love as they do into it, 
and, as generally occurs, the lady proved the 

most faithful of the pair. When Miss C 

could no longer doubt that she was forsaken, 
and that some fortunate rival had taken her 
place, she wrote a letter full of despair and 
reproaches, with threats of suicide, command- 
ing M'Kinnon to send her back the lock of hair 
which she had given him in happier days, etc. 
The barbarian gave no written answer to this 
passionate appeal, but sent bis orderly to the 
lady (who was a person of high birth and 
aristocratic connections), with a large packet 
or portfolio containing innumerable locks of 
hair, from grey to flaxen, from raven to red, 
with a message that she was to choose from 

among them her own property. Miss C 's 

answer was to dash the whole collection into 
the fire. 

Appeal of Grandsire's. 

Editor News Letter: — Mr. Dickens, in his 
"Old Curiosity Shop," rang the Nell of grand- 
filial piety. The way in which that precocious 
child brought up — not to say pulled up — her 
grandfather, was an example which the rising 
generation was only too ready to follow. And 
now see what comes of it! This is from the 
London Times, a few weeks back: 

GRANDFATHER had better RETURN HOME at once, 
and show by his future conduct that he will endeavor to 
retrieve the post. Ho must, however, determine to act 
very differently. Bring back the things. Shall adver- 
tise no more. 

What the dickens — not Charles— shall we 
have next? Second childhood will be sent to 
Dotheoldboy r s Hall, and be cut off with a six- 
pence and a parish loaf, if it shows any of the 
pardonable follies of second youth. This must 
be seen to, sir — this must be seen to! I en- 
close my Gard, but do not wish my grand- 
children to know of my writing to you, and, 
therefore, sign myself, Your obedient, mumble 
servant, Toothless Timothy. 

South Park, July 14, 1864. 



The Latest Altagraph. 

"Information is wanted," says the Blanket, 
"of Mrs. Taphouse and child, arrived by the 
Golden Age last trip by her husband." AVe 
wonder whether the "last trip" was "by her 
husband," or whether the lady "arrived by 
her husband," or — but in short, what the deuce 
does it mean? Will the Blanket, or Mrs. T., 
or Mr. T., or some party interested, or dis- 
interested, explain to a perplexed and anxious 
public.

A Pine Picture of Virginia City. 

"We are indebted to C. C. Kuchcl for an admirable view of the great 
city of Nevada Territory and its surroundings. The picture exhibits, 
in all their imposiog grandeur, the lowering mountains on whose 
eastern slope Virginia is built; and it furnishes at a glance a far more 
accurate idea of all the interesting mining localities, and of the gene- 
ral topography of the adjacent country, than could be gathered from 
the most elaborate description. The picture is wonderfully accurate, 
even in the minutest particulars; and is enhanced in value by an orna- 
mental border representing the principal public and private buildings 
of the city, which shows that the people do not live (as a universal 
rule) in sage-brush shanties.

OUR BUSINESS SUMMARY FOR THE WEEK. 

Business for tho most part has beoa quite at n stand-still— very dull 
in the. Wholesale Department, m hf u most Interests arc ooDOerocd ; 
but particularly s» as regards the Fbrtign Gommeree of the port. 
Tola importanl brunch of trado has been seriously interfered with all 
the Fear, chii-ily by the rasolllatlng course of the Government in re- 
gard to the Turiir. Constant changes Id the Duties always operate 
prejudlaheUy to trade ; but it has operated this year with particular 
hardship. May entered with a tempocary 60>day law, whereby Con> 
greed exacted, in the gross, an additional Tax of 50 per cent, on 
Ditties heretofore paid. This was done to give our Washington Law- 
makers tiuiL" to mature a proper Tarilf Uill. Daring this Interim the 
importing merchants virtually aud for the most part suspended busi- 
ness, so far as paying or entering Goods tor Duty were concerned. 
Now, when many of our merchants are advised by telegram, direct 
from the Treasury Department at Washington, to and through tho 
Collector of this Port, what the Duties on Tea and Coffee really are, 
and iu the face of this positive knowledge the Collector exacts the old 
Dirties aud 50 per cent, more, and in the case of Champagne Wines 
100 per cent, additional is required to be paid or deposited. To illus- 
trate the point more fully, tho case stands thus : On coffee paying a 
duty of 5c per pound, 7Ac is required ; Tea, upon a duty of 25c per 
pound, 37Jc is demanded— or what is the same thing, a deposit of 50 
per cent, is exacted from the importer — and this large sum goes into 
the Government vault to be kept there, until when? Why, until the 
Collector of tho Port receives, by Overland Mail or by Steamer, an 
official copy from the United States Treasury Department, of the new 
Tariff Bill; then this money is to be returned, without interest, after 
being hoarded sixty days or more. All this time the Collector of the 
Port and the merchants in interest know, by telegram from the proper 
Department at Washington, what the exact Duties are. Again, an im- 
porter complains of the Collector that he exacts from him 100 per 
cent, deposit upon his Champagne Wine, (now in boud,) over the old 
rate of Duties, which amounts in all to 150 per cent, advalorem. 
What merchant can or will stand this trifling? They are not made of 
money ; they do not control the Mint, nor hold the purse-strings of an 
Astor. Oh I no;- this is a free country — all do as they list. Then, 
again, in the Domestic line : The Excise Law was in abeyance for six 
months, and is now, to a certain extent ; so that to take Legislative 
matters altogether, Commerce has been pretty effectually tied up of 
late. It only requires the introduction of paper Money — Legal Tender 
Notes, Greenbacks— to make things about as badly mixed and compli- 
cated as they possibly could be, without experiencing a general crash. 
That has not yet come, and we hope it never will, though Fed men 
have suffered badly of late. -Now for details of trade: 

All kinds of English Bag;* and Bagging fabrics are dull and neglected"; and so of tho 
British Dry Goods trade generally. Candles aro dull and lower, lSJ^c beiug an ex- 
treme price. Cordage is quiet, at 14%c. JiDglish Coal, £14@S15 per ton; Sydney,

THE FAITHLESS RIFLEMAN. 

A MOST PATHETIC BALLAD. 

After (a long way) Thomas Hood. 



Oh! listen all ye Volunteers, 

And if you've no objections, 
I'll tell you how a Rifleman 

Did rifle my affections. 
Hi" name was Billy, and he said 

His age was twenty-three; 
He was a Private in the racks 

And privately lov'd me. 
One day be came to our house 

My brother lor to see; 
He was so baudsomc in his cap 

He captivated me. 
And just at half-past six o'clock 

He says to me so shy, 
Your companee I do request 

To see our compani. 
And there I saw such nice young mon 

With an officer so grand, 
No sharp blafle himself, although bo held 

A sharp blade in hia hand. 
And then he put them in a line 

And told ttiem all to dress ; 
I really don't know what it meant, 

Aud can't pretend to guess. 
I watch'd my Billy in the line, 

And thought it was a sin 
That when he did present his arms 

I could not straight fall in. 



And then some one called out, left face, 

And they all looked to one side; 
But when I at my Billy gazed 

The right face I espied. 
And then tbey cried, right face about, 

And tbey all backod up astern, 
And mareb'd away with all their might 

Till some one yell'd, rear turn. 
And then they all at once turu'd round, 

And marched right back again; 
I thought it very pretty, aud 

I saw it very plain. 
Ami then they wheeVd them right and 

In a way I much admired; [left 

They wheel'd so much I really thought 

They all ought to be tired. 
And as I saw my Billy wheel 

I thought be looked so tine; 
OhI if he had but spoUe the word 

A hub he'd beeu uf mine. 
But Billy he to me prov'd false, 

For after a long while, 
He Kaid to me he thought ho should 

Remain a single file. 
OhI Billy, Billy! naughty man 

Your sad deceit you'll rue, 
I thought you'd be my Billy, hut 

You've proved a Billy-do. 



England's Metal Trade. 



The London Mining Journal of May 14, says: — "The announcement 
made by the directors of the Bank of E .gland, no Monday last, that 
they had raised the rate of discount to 8 per cent., was a great blow to 
the metal trade, but the further advance of the Bank rate, on Thursday, 
9 per cent., has come with still greater force, not having been ex- 
' pected. These rapid advances, though, doubtless, wise and salutary 
measures, and most likely rendered necessary by circumstances not 
yet made fully public, appear very ominous, and give rise to fears that 
notwithstanding all that has been done by this country to preserve 
peace, yet that after all we may be drawo, however reluctantly, into 
war, and should this be the case that a general European war can 
hardly fail to ensue. It cannot, therefore, be matter of surprise that 
this increasd tightness of the money market should act very injuriously 
upon the commerce of the country generally, and especially upon the 
Metal Trade, which has now so long been in a drooping and unhealthy 
condition, and which required something to give life and vigor to the 
trade, rather than measures which will tend still further to depress it, 
and prevent any return at present to healthiness and prosperity. The 
third meeting of the Conference also having taken place without any- 
thing decisive being done, is calculated to cause doubts whether it will, 
after all, answer the great end proposed by its appointment, or 
whether it may not separate without any result of a satisfactory char- 
acter. Under all circumstances, both political and commercial affairs, 
at the present time, look sufficiently gloomy.

ntyhl, and seasoning the llavor of choice liquors with pleasant chat and an occasional 
glance at the newapnpen. Here, as *i the best Parisian oabarets,we can obtain a bot- 
tle of good wine, and enjoy U in the midst of pleasant surroundings. We may as well 

add that tbe "Frlond of Garibaldi" diapauses, at bis Symposium,* sparkling wine of 

finer flavor than most of th- importi'.l champagnes, and much less costly. Let any In- 
dividual WOO is skeptical ou Ibid poiul call at Sjuarza's, and ask for a Dottle of his 
"Sparkling Moselle."

SAX FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER, AND 



[July l(i, 1S64. 



Dr. Bellows on "Chivalry." 

The great Sanitarian, who on the Fourth of July expressed a pious 
desire that "the war might go on for ever" rather than that the "Union 
as it was" should be restored, has made great progress in radicalism 
since October last. On the 13th of that month he made a speech before 
the Unitarian Convention assembled at Brooklyn, N. Y., in which he 
Bpoke in terms of warm, nay, affectionate, admiration of the very people 
lor whose extermination he now seems so eager. He declared, in no 
equivocal terms, the social superiority of the leading class at the South 
over the corresponding class at the North. It was a candid and mag- 
nanimous avowal, and "made a great stir at the time among the small- 
souled politicians who habitually denounced Southern men as ruffians 
ami bullies. We think our readers will like to hear what the Doctor 
had to say on this subject, and propose to give a few extracts from the 
speech. First, in regard to the social qualities and governing talents 
of Southerners, he says: — 

"No candid mind will deny the peculiar charm of Southern young men at college, or 
of Southern young women in society. How far race and climate, independent of ser- 
vile institutions, may have produced the Southern chivalric spirit and manners, I will 
not here consider. But one might as well deny the small Tect and hands of that people, 
as deny a certain inbred habit of command; a contempt nf life in defence of honor or 
class; a talent for political life, and an easy cuntrol of inferiors. Nor is this merely 
an external or flashy heroism. It is real. It showed itself in Congress early aud 
always by (he courage, eloq nonce, skill and success with which it controlled, majorities. 
It showed itself in the social life of Washington by the grace, fascination and ease, the 
free and charming hospitality by which it governed society. It shows itself in Eng- 
land and France, by the success with which it manages the courts aud the circles of 
literature and fashion in both countries." 

But again. We have heard a great deal about Southern barbarity, 
cruelty to sick and wounded prisoners, etc; here is the Sanitarian's 
testimony on that point: — 

"The spirit I speak of also shows itself in this war in the orders and proclamations 
of its generals, in the messages of the rebel Congress, and in the essential good breed- 
ing and humanity (contrary to a diligently encouraged public impression) with which 
it not seldom divides its medical stores, and gives our sick and wounded as favorable 
care as it is able to extend to its own. It exceeds us at this moment in the possession 
of an ambulance corps." 

The Doctor next pays a noble tribute to the fortitude and valor of 
the people against whom he would now let loose a million of negroes, 
in order that they may be the more expeditiously butchered. 

"I think the war must have increased the respect, felt by the North for the South. 
Its miraculous resources, the bravery of its troops, their patience under hardships, 
their unshrinking firmness in the desperate position they have assumed, the wonder- 
ful success with which they have extemporized manufactures and munitions of war, 
and kept themselves in relation with the world in spite of our magnillcent blockade; 
the elasticity with which they have risen from defeat, and the courage they have 
shown in threatening again and again our Capital, and even our interior, cannot fail 
to extort an unwilling admiration and respect. Well is General Meridian reported to 
have Said (privately) as lie watched their obstinate light iug at Antietam, and saw them 
retiring in perfect order in the midst of the most frightful carnage: 'What terriQc 
neighbors these would bel We must conquer them, or they will conquer us!' " 

Such, according to Dr. Bellows, are the people against whom he now 
pronounces the doom of "subjugation or extermination." 

Telegraphic. 

[From the Dispatches of the Associated Tress.] 

Baltimore, July 10. — The fiendish tatterdemalions of Lee are threat- 
ening this place. They are now 16 miles distant, and will never get any nearer. No 
alarm is felt. 

Later: July It. — The Rebels are advancing. They are now within ten miles of the 
city, But nobody here is scared; the gallant Wallace will drive them back like chall 
before the wiud. 

Still Later. — The Confederate troops continue to advance. Gen. Wnllaco is falling 
hack before them. Some uneasiness is felt here. 

Later: July 12 — Our brethren in arms for the defence of Southern liberties are 
within a short distance of the- city. No alarm need be felt. If Baltimore should be 
captured, all private rights will be respected. As a matter of precaution, however, 
the bullion, books and valuable records of our banks aud public institutions have been 
placed on hoard a steamer in the harbor for safety. 

Washixgto.v, July 11. — Disbelieve all Secesh rumors of terror and panic in Washing- 
ton. The Government is wide awake. It is believed the preparations for defence arc 
abundant. Enemy not over 6000. We anticipate a glorious victory, and the President 
has appointed a Day of Thanksgiving. 

Later: July 12. Grant has been telegraphed to send reinforcements. He refuses: — 
says it's nothing but a horse-slealiog raid. No panic here. Every one coul. Govern- 
ment particularly wide awake. Enemy estimated at from 12,000 to 20.000. 

Later Still. — The invaders have had the audacity to attack the Southern defences of 
the Capital! Some excitement here. Everybody packing "up their valuables, uud 
burying what they cau't remove; but no panic. Government is still wide awake — so 
much so that Old Abo and his Cabinet have not slept for three nights. A special train 
of cars, northward, kept ready with locomotive fired up in case of emergency. Enemy 
estimated at 38,000. The President has appointed a Day of Humiliation, Easting and 
Prayer, that our bloodthirsty enemies .may Dot be permitted to prevail over and utterly 
exterminate us. 



Bothering the Lord. 



Mr. Abo Lincoln— ''Ilonest Old Abe"— is at the Lord again ! We 
are to have more fasting, more prayer, and if possible, more humiliation: 

"Oh! for a forty-parson power, 
To cbaut thy praise^ Hypocrisy!" 

"We are to pray that, "If it is consistent with His will, the Rebellion 
may be speedily squelched out; that we may not be utterly destroyed 
and knocked into a cocked-bat; and that Liberty, Equality and Frater- 
nity may be re-established right off." So mote it be! We beg to sug- 
gest the propriety of imploring the Lord to have mercy upon the tax- 
payers, and to console our afflicted creditors — who, poor devils, at 
present incline to the "disloyal" belief that they will never get "a red!" 



Question for Miscugexatioxists. — Whether the Pa Monkey, as crossed 
by Grant, or Ape the Ugly, slightly tinged with Shoddy, is the better 
species of Gorilla; or whether the Morgan breed doesn't take prece- 
dence of both ? 

J&&*- Ottr correspondent is right. There are of course many degrees 
of Abolitionism, like crime. But we cannot agree with him that "The 
Government of the United States is virtually at an end." 




Little Gent (indignantly) : "Reasonable ! What! 7s. Cd. a-head for 
half a Sole, a Cutlet, and Khubarb Tart ! Well, it ain't my idea." 

Head Waiter (blandly): "Hoh, Sir, if you'd spoken before'and, we'd 
J ave perwided a Dinner more suited to a style of Genteel llindigence." 

Figurative "War Talk. 

The civil war has introduced a new branch of literature. Plain lan- 
guage for a plain people is not used by warlike men and warrior officials. Butler bad 
"the key to Richmond." Grant was "before the gates" of the same town. Butier 
did not send thai key to Graut to open the gates — perhaps because ho found out that 
the key would not fit the lock— and left^Grant, Samson-like, to carry oil the gates on 
his shoulders, and present them to Lincoln as a little joke. Butler told Grant that he 
had "whipped" Beauregard. The language of the Prize Ring suits the bully who con- 
verts a clergyman into a scavenger by Court Martial — an old name for a new Inquisi- 
tion. "The pen is mightier than the sword," aud Dana, the war correspondent of the 
New York Tribune, writes himself into the office of Assistant Secretary of War. What 
his business is we don't know, unless it be to assist Stanton in writing the telegrams 
which Pixley says aro untrue. This Assistant nays, officially, that "Grant has his 
hand on Lee's throat, and will not let go bis hold till he chokes him to death." That 
is rather bad for Grant — if he has to hold Lee auy length of thne— as he mightwanl to 
take a drink, or do something else. It is also bad for Lee, as he might feel the neces- 
sity for bis pro rata of oxygen, which floats arouud the world's surface rather freely, 
especially in our city. But as Lee has his sword arm free, Graut niight he induced to 
let go his hold. 

Dearth of "Church" Talent 

How can "the Church" expect to advance and grow on this coast, 

■without the aid of popular talents? ^Vhy doesn't the head of the Church in California 
import a popular preacher? One man Like Tyng, or Huntington, or Vinton', would do 
more to give weight and ascendancy to the Church on this const than a dozen Deans, 
Cathedral* nnd Parish Schools. "Why are the heretics permitted to monopolize all the 
genius ami talent? "Why has the Church no champion fit to encounter such men as 
King, Bellows, Kittridgo, etc. Since Ewer left us, wo have had no brilliant talent in 
the Church. Since Thrall left us, we have had no solid talents. Not a single man 
evincing a spark of genius, from the Right Rev. Head down to the last "Deacon" or- 
daiuod, can the Church boast of on this Pacific Coast. McAllister and Brother ton aro 
men of respectable ability, of zeal, energy and great usefulness; hut they are not Grants 
in intellect, and cannot influence masses. Yi-t they are altogether tho best we have.— 
The rest aro mere sticks — men who could never win distinction in any culling, or shine 
in any community — unless it were a community of fools. 

Our Theologian. 

lie gnes but to return; therefore we will not grieve for him as those 

Without hope. The church-edifice difficulty ban been satisfactorily adjusted. The Pres- 
byterian Cathedral is to be built on the genuine "Cathedralic" plan — that is, on credit. 
One tower is tone 16ft for posterity to finish — nnd pay for. The '^Evangelicals" will 
then have "a Cathedral and a Parish School" — those great agents for the advancement 
of religion and civilization. Tho departure of our Theologian icos nccexsarif. — He is un- 
married, aud all the susceptible virgins of his flouk were after him, not counting half a 
dozen widuws. The pious deacons shook then - gray heads and declared that this would 
nor do, and that the Congregation and Sewing Circle would be in a state of fearful com- 
lui'ti.ni, so long as the Pastor remained single. Accordingly matrimony was prescribed; 
and, in order to prevent a tragedy ensuing from feminine jealousy, he was sent East to 
fiud a helpmeet. This is the whole story. 

WANTED—A "Smart" Competent Man to net as Secretary 
of the Treasury. Salary moderate; term of employment indefinite. No Irish, 
Dutch, Jews, or blawsted Foreigners, need apply. Unquestionably a "Smart Man" can 
make a "good thing" out of this Situation even yet — though doubtless he will have to 
Bull and Bear the Money Market to a great extent, on the "Hard Cash" resources ho 
may possess or command. Apply to Abraham tho Beautiful; tho Seller of Doves, in tho 
Temple Washington. Jy4-tf

cipUs from oODlknretlODJ of pnticy. Such a course is unworthy of Btajestrien. we're

mea three cheers Ibr "The Star Spangled Banner, and then trusting to Provi- 
dence and Manifest Destiny, boMly pitch In, and give all t tho world "Hail Columbia." 

Shocking, If True. 
The Rev. Abbot E. Kit trudge hits received a call to become the per- 
manenl Pastor of the Howard Street Presbyterian Church. Quite right! Kittredge is 

a tnorterl The News LtxrKii has n<<t praised btm In vain; he baa got blfl reward. Wo 

oncelvabhj shocked, on reading in the local column of the Alia, tho following 
base slander <, we nope) of tint worthy divine: — '-It is rumored that one object of tho 
distinguished clergyman's visit to tho Fast is, to been mo united to ono who will return 
hither to share with him the duties and responsibilities incumbeut on the minister's 
wife " Can tins be true! Is Klltredgo going Bast to get some ouo to "share with him 
the duties and responsibilities of a miniator's h Ifel" If ho is, he ought to be- ashamed 
of himself, and so>ought the person ho hires, whether it is a ho or a she. Perhaps, 
after all, the evac-gelica! lokalitums of the Alia Is tho causo of this mischief, as be 
has lately murdered English In a manner that Is entirely beneath criticism. 

Discreet Ferocity. 
The Call came out the other day with un overflowing, pot-furious 
eloquence "f vituperation against Democratic irishmen. It was a howl worthy of the 
a '■■ vi r. Tho Democratic Press mildly reminded tho junior Bowler, that it was digging 
its own crrave by venturing into that line of business; as it would bo sure to excite 
Hibernian Indignation, and all the Biddies would forthwith " stop the paper." Tims 
astonished, tha polite little Squealer reconsidered iho mattor, and after a week's x& 

monstrance against "tho imputation," became quiet. It "didn't mean anything par- 
ticular" yon know — at least it didu't mean to make a false move, and having made one, 
was all ready to back out as a burglar i* when he sees a gix-shooler ahead in near per- 
spective. The fact is, -these are ticklish times, and it requires much judgment to be 
ferocious with discretion. 

"Warlike Bellowings. 
Dr. Bellows delivered a lecture at the Nigger Church, on Stockton 

Street, this week, in the curse of wIiilIi lie proved conclusively that war is far prefer- 
able to peace. He went in for perpetual war; it kept talks from idleness. There had 
been fewer thieves convicted in the great cities of the Union, during this war, than 
during any like period of time. All the thieves were in the army. War gave every- 
one a chance to make money. Soc what it had done for the Butler brothers! War 
emptied the insane asylums, all the madmen went to fight. War was good for par- 
sons; they marl.- money out of it. He, Dr. Bellows, went in for a continuance of war; 
when Americans had dooo lighting about niggers, they could Qnd something else to 
light about. War! War! [ War! ! I 

The Comanche. 
The newspapers of this city have been shrieking over the Camanche's 
lying in pieces, at a lime when France has made up her mind to take possession of 
San Francisco. "There's the Camancbe." they cried, and "duu't know who's to put 
her together." Now, the trouble is settled, Donahue's going to put her tngelber, and 
wo hope he will get paid for it. By tho by, tho papers have, as Mr. Donahue very 
justly complaiuB, given an uujuat idea of tho injury sustained by tho Camanche, in 
speaking or it as damage to her crockery. The plates of the Camaucho can scarcely 
come under the denomination of crockerv. 



The Press on the News. 
To comfort loyal men, we give the opinions of the San Francisco 

press on the subject of the invasion in Maryland. Grandmamma Attn says it is "ex- 
ceedingly audacious ;" the driver of tho Mud Carl says it Is jolly — "the very desper- 
ation of tho rebels, shows that Grant is terribly crowding them" (we hope ho won't 
"crowd" them into .Washington) ; and tho little curly-tailed PeJjp says " we are still 
too impatient," we must curb our impetuous anticipations, and prove ourselves all the 
stronger and more formidable, by patriotic sobriety." Tho Yelp is right; let tha 
editors especially all go in for "patriotic sobriety." 



A Most Delicate Hint. 
Mr. Maguire having invited General McDowell to attend a perfor- 
mance at thd Opera House, on the choice of the play to be presented on the occasion 
being left to him, by the General, chose the comedy of "A Bull in a China Shop." We 
are quite sure that General McDowell, in spite of the libellous statements published in 
the Gag, has no intention of playing the part of a bull in a china-shop, during his stay 
in this State, particularly after witnessing Sir. Whcatleigli's admirable impersonation 
of that very unpleasant animal. 



Mistaken Liberality. 
The Blanket informs its readers that a gold pen manufacturer of this 

H»lias presented two of its editorial stall' with a gold pen each. A Iwg pen npicco 

would bd very appropriate.

So much madcl 

Wo havo received from our Special Reporter, particulars which explain why Mr. 
(' — so retired from business, which wo shall publish in our next issue. 



California Ahead. 
The English newspapers are making a great fuss over the fact that 

there is now-one woman doctor in England. Johnny Bull is as far behind us in this, as 
in everything else. We have swarms of female doctors. We thiuk, however, that on 
advertisement in a San Francisco newspaper, the special advertising medium of quack 
doctors, both male and, female, shows that California is going ahead very fast. A 
woman advertises as a doetrcss, "graduate" midwife, aud vaccinator. Not content 
with this, she boldly plunges into dentistry, pulls, fills, and cleans teeth! This medical 
female claims to have lately arrived from Paris; wo suppose she would therefore bo 
properly styled a deiUiste. 

Shockingly Independent. 
General McDowell, on Wednesday last, inspected all our harbor for- 
tifications, and the city newspapers, with desperate recklessness, publish a full report 
of the amount of metal in the torts, and other particulars which Louis Napoleon, who 
is going to attack San Francisco, would givo his ears to know. Perhaps, however, no 
harm will come or this publication of the strength of the fortifications. Louis Napo- 
leon may, when he reads of the wonderful defences of our harbor, become convinced 
that wo are impregnable. 

Dabbling in the " Sewer." 
The Evening Sewer is getting quite pretty. It publishes a column 

and a half letter from a "lady corresponaent," describing the Fourth of July at Santa 
Cruz, an-1 a real nice pic-nic she attended there. Quito a gushing lady correspon- 
dent she is. She shines out iu tho Sewer like an egg-shell in a gutter. There is not 
an illnattired word in the letter. The Seiver is reforming. We have hopes of it now; 
a lady who signs herself "F. F. V." coudesceuds to take a seat on tho Mud Cart. 

Comforting. 
"Our Army Washington Correspondent telegraphed last night as 

follows: Disbolievo all secesh rumors of dangers and terrors in Washington. Tho 
Government is wide awake, and has been so for some days."' This is glorious news 
indeed; tho Government has been wide awako for somo days, and Abruham is uo 
louger the Sleeping Beauty. 

"Winslow's Soothing Syrup. 
Captain Winslow wishes to settle his little disagreement with Capt. 

Sctnmes, quietly ; to treat it as a "personal matter." Sera roes is most unreasonable 
not to trust Winslow. Ho would doubtless hang him in the most gentlemanly manner. 



Circumstances Alter Cases. 
In former days, numbers of persons might have been seen standing 

round tho Post Office, licking postage stamps. Now, hundreds stand in the same place, 
longiug to lick tho Post Master. 

"Come into mt Parlor," says the Spider to the Fly.— Capt. Wins- 
low, it is said, has ordered Capt. Semmes to come and deliver himself 
up, under penalty of his making it a personal affair! "Did you ever? 
No, I never!"

SAN FRANCISCO NEWS LETTER, AND 



[July 16, 1864. 



Attention ! Attention ! 

AT 1 ACT OF LAND, Embracing an area of 400 acres, lias recently been surveyed and 
plotted out Into lots, which are now offered for sale on as reasonable terms as any 
ever offered by the various Homestead Associations in our city. The tract Is known as 
the "University Muund Survey,'' and derives its name from the fact that the Directors of 
the University College have selected a site of about twenty acres in the centre of tiie tract 
for their College Budding and Park. This property is more beautiful than any ever 
offered in this market, and Its location is such that it must in the natural progress of 
improvement soon be in great demand for places of residence. That this property will 
increase in value, is as certain as the future of San Francisco. 

Investments in Real Estate, it is well known, have paid as largely as any other, and 
insurance against risk, of depreciation in value is secured by the sure and rapid increase 
of our population. 

Invest in Real Estate, and you And It more profitable than investing in wildcat mining 
stock or loaning money that may be paid in depreciated currency. 

The prices for lots in the above tract will remain uniform until after the holidays— that 
is, one-half cash and the ballance in one year, without interest. The title to the land is 
perfect. For iurthcr particulars applv to HARVEY S. BROWN, No. 19 Naglee's Building. 
Or to JOHN BAKKELER, Real Estate Acenr. No. 622 Merchant street. 

Lithographic Maps can be seen and had at the above named offices. 

Building Lots for Sale. 
■" OTS ON SECOND STREET, between Bryant and Ilrannan, overlooking the Bay and 
_i_J Contra Costa, 100 to 137 feet deep. Lots on Brannan. near Third, 80 to 100 feet deep. 
Lots on South Park, 100 to 175 leet deep. Four flue Corner Lots. Purchasers can have 
width of frontage to suit. The above property presents all the requisites for family resi- 
dences: Secure title; good soil for foundations and garden plots; a respectable neighbor- 
hood, thorough drainage ibeingHu feet above tide) and easy access to the business parts ol 
the city (the cars running to them every few minutes). The lots and streets are on the 
grade. The South Park lots have 200 feet bcteen the lines of houses laid out for avenues 
and a public garden, which is as fertile and well kept as any ornamental piece 
of ground in the city. Parties can build in any form that suits them; buton the lots front- 
ing on the Park, stores cannot be erected oxecpt by consent of a majority of the residents. 
The owner of the above propertv, requiring I'unds for manufacturing purposes, will close 
it out at low prices— as low as building lots on the sand filled swamps west of Third street 
are selling at. Apply to any Real Estate Agent or to G. GORDON No. 411 Merchant St. 

Homsteads Cheaper than Proposed under the Shaft er Bill. 

UNDER the provisions of what is known ns the Shatter Bill, it Is proposed to sell tDe 
City Title to Homestead lots forS25 to 5200 each. 

The undersigned will sell homestead lots within the city limits of the city, and much 
nearer the centre of business than the lands covered bv the Shatter Bill, and places the 
party in immediate possession of the same without present trouble or prospective law 
suits, for $10 io §200 each. The Title Is absolutely perfect, being a Spanish grant, finally 
confirmed and patented by the United States. The Shatter Bill respects this title, the city 
authorities respect it, the District Courts and Supreme Court of the State, as well as the 
District Court and Supreme Court of the United States respect it— besides the. title has 
been forever quited by a final decree and judgment against the city — so that there is not 
even a cloud or shadow upon it Whoever purchases one of these lots will buy a lot and 
not a lawsuit. HARVEY S. BROWN.
